LCGC's coverage of Pittcon 2009, day three, from Chicago.

March 11 — Chicago, Illinois — We build up to Pittcon for months in advance, scheduling appointments, scripting presentations, and choosing the right pair (or pairs) of shoes - and then before you know it, here we are at the end of the week. Certainly many attendees will be walking the floor tomorrow and many others will be here Friday and beyond. But for a good number of attendees, the exodus out of Chicago begins today and tonight.

LCGC is pleased to present CHROMacademy – a program of interactive learning topics from EARL – the electronic analytical reference library (Crawford Scientific UK).

Test your knowledge and skills in HPLC Autosamplers. This free module offers a practical introduction to the principles of autosampler function, use and troubleshooting, as well as a full multimedia description of how autosamplers function in step-by-step guides. From pull-to-fill to integral loop designs, this unit gives critical insight into how these devices function in order to introduce our sample plug into the eluent flow as efficiently as possible. Critical topics such as carryover are discussed as well as in-depth treatment of the effects of sample volume and autosampler design on peak shape and efficiency. Learn how a Rheodyne valve functions and what to look out for when autosamplers go wrong!
