Online Certificate Course on Optimum use of Analytical and Preparative HPLCs.

Organized by:

COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabad in Collaboration with the International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS) Karachi, Pakistan

March 11-12, 2021

Note: All selected candidates have been informed about the outcome of their registration.

High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. It relies on pumps to pass a pressurized liquid solvent containing the sample mixture through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material. Each component in the sample interacts slightly differently with the adsorbent material, causing different flow rates for the different components and leading to the separation of the components as they flow out of the column. Because of this versatility, HPLC is used in a variety of industrial and scientific applications, such as pharmaceutical, environmental, forensics, and chemicals. This two-day online certificate course comprised of lectures followed by training sessions on “Basic concepts and techniques in HPLC”. The course is designed to teach the basic skills of HPLC to participants from all scientific disciplines those have little or no previous experience in HPLC hands on work. It is also an ideal course for those who would like to consolidate their current, basic skill level and to further polish their handling skills.


The course is designed for the large group of audience including graduate students, scientists, research scholars, and medical doctors those have interest to work on HPLC in related fields. People from variety of disciplines and academic backgrounds including chemistry, pharmacy, pesticide science, environmental science, forensics, archeology, etc., can get benefit from this workshop.


The program includes a series of online lectures and hands-on sessions on the following topics;

Introduction of HPLC (online lectures)

Working examples of analytical HPLCs (online lectures)

Optimum use of analytical HPLCs (hands-on sessions)

Optimum use of preparative HPLCs (hands-on sessions)
