Strong Support for HPLC and LC-MS Training Courses

LCGC North America

Training courses in the practical applications of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) were held in Hangzhou on April 12, 2013.

Training courses in the practical applications of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) were held in Hangzhou on April 12, 2013. Investment Management Co., Ltd., Hangzhou Biomedical National High-tech Industrial Park, and China Chromatography Web, hosted the event, which was co-organized by Thermo Fisher Scientific and Waters Corporation. The Chinese Food and Drug Testing and Research Institute, the Zhejiang Provincial Institute for Drug Control, and Zhejiang University all provided strong support.

Training focused on the applications of HPLC and LC–MS in quality control for pharmaceutical products. Discussions centered around technology applications in quantitative assay, impurity analyses, pharmaceutical ingredients, and unknown metabolite screening analyses, and the application of new equipment and technologies. The event was designed to improve drug research and development (R&D) and quality control capabilities in Hangzhou Xiasha Biopharmaceutical Industrial Park, pharmaceutical companies, and research institutions, and to help scientists gain more knowledge about scientific methods for drug development.

An estimated 100 participants were in attendance, including R&D managers, technical directors, analytical chemists, and other professionals from Hangzhou pharmaceutical companies, universities, and research institutions. Presenters included Baoming Ning of the Chinese Institute of Food and Drug Testing, Weifeng Yang of the Zhejiang Food and Drug Inspection Institute, Yongjiang Wu of the Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Shiming Ma, technology manager at Nobuyasu Pharmaceuticals (Suzhou) Co., Ltd, Lirui Qiao, a scientist at Waters Corporation, and Aiying Nie and Lvye Liu, engineers at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
