HPLC 2023 Discussion Sessions

Published on: 

Stefan Lamotte (BASF SE) and Matthias Pursch (The Dow Chemical Company) will chair a discussion on Sustainability and The Green Laboratory at 17:00 on Monday 19 June 2023 in Room 3. The panellists will consist of Elia Psilakis (Technical University of Crete), Andreas Otto (Agilent Technologies), Frank Steiner (Thermo Fisher Scientific), and will be supported by panel infrastructure manager and advocate for the audience, Mimi den Uijl (SistersInScience). The discussion will be on sustainability in industrial analytical laboratories. What is the status of sustainability in separation science? What are the pain points and what can separation scientists do to continuously improve sustainability in the laboratories? The panellists will provide a variety of perspectives, from both industry instrument manufacturers and academia. A lively discussion will be fired by mentimeter polls and interaction with the audience. On Tuesday 20 June 2023 at 17:00, again in Room 3, there will be a second discussion session around the topic: LC×LC–MS vs. LC–IM‑MS: Which Method is the Best Suited for Which Questions? chaired by Isabelle François (Chromisa Scientific). The panellists will be Dwight Stoll (Gustavus Adolphus College), André de Villiers (Stellenbosch University), Paola Dugo (University of Messina), Erin Baker (The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Tim Causon (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences - BOKU), and Gérard Hopfgartner (University of Geneva). The analysis of very complex samples is becoming more and more important and thus the need for separation power in front of the detector is constantly increasing. The pros and cons of both methods will be discussed in detail.
