Course Description
This course will cover the basics of method development for an analytical separation. The process begins with outlining the needs of the method being developed so more or less attention is paid to the most important details. The details of the needs are then merged with the mode to be used, and any related history that is known or can be found in the literature. This gets the method development off to a faster, more confident start. The method is completed by optimizing factors of column selectivity, column size and flow rates to give a rapid, reproducible final method.

Target Audience
This course was designed for those who have been using HPLC but now need to begin to develop new methods or optimize on older methods currently in use. Today through the use of newer columns and LC systems considerable analytical time (and money) savings can be accomplished. Also important is making the method user friendly by testing within the laboratory.

Course Outline
• HPLC analytical method development - what it is
• Analysis of the method needed - simple or complex
• In-house or on-line help to shorten the process
• Choosing initial conditions to begin
• Optimizing the method for maximum throughput
• Validation of the method
• Discussion of optimization software
