Who should take this course?
If you use capillary electrophoresis (CE) in your work and want a better understanding of the technique, or want to start with CE and want to be well prepared, this course is for you. The course is designed for analytical scientists and technicians who use CE in their regular job, but also lab managers and quality assurance or regulatory people who need to review CE work might find it useful. No previous CE training is assumed, however, much of the course will also appeal to the experienced scientist who wants a firm ground in the basics of CE.

What does it cover?
“Introduction to Capillary Electrophoresis” explains the fundamentals of CE from the ground up. The course comprises:
- The basic principles of capillary electrophoresis
- Ten different modes of CE, including CZE, CGE and cIEF
- Equipment and operational details
- Treatment of the capillary, the separation column
- Electrokinetic and hydrodynamic injection
- Multiple detection mechanisms
- Corrected peak areas explained
- How to get started with method development and how to predict the migration order
- Tips for successful implementation of CE in your lab

What will I get from this course?
After this course, you will understand the fundamentals of capillary electrophoresis and many of its working modes. What you have learned will demystify the secrets of CE. With better understanding of the different CE modes, you will be better able to select the proper one for your analytical question. You have acquired many tips on and understanding of instrumental parameters so that your next CE method development will be more successful. You will find that perplexing and frustrating issues you experienced have simple and logical solutions and you will have learned to prevent them. And you will learn all that is needed for successful implementation of CE in your lab.
