Hi everybody – this week instead of giving you a couple of tips myself, I want to point you toward a whole bunch of tips from my colleague, Rita. The group she’s in offers monthly webinars, all of which I think are valuable, but there are two older webinars from this series that I think are especially useful to this audience.
The first one is “The Chromatography Checklist.” Many of us have that mental “keys, wallet, phone…” checklist as we head out the door each morning, and having a quick checklist to review before running your sample sequence is at least as important. Rita will cover things like supplies to double check, why we should benchmark our column on our LC system, and the importance of regular maintenance – all things to make sure operations run smoothly. I think this webinar will be especially great to anybody who’s new to LC, or has new colleagues (summer interns??) to train.
The second one is “Making the Leap: Small Molecules to Biomolecules.” Many scientists doing biomolecule separations are really experienced… with small molecules. I see this a lot with users at companies that are moving from small molecule pharmaceuticals to large molecule biotherapeutics. Sure, some details will be familiar, but proteins can behave really differently in ways you might not anticipate. Rita will walk through what’s different and what stays the same surrounding method development parameters, column selection, sample preparation, and troubleshooting.
A great thing about webinars is you can always watch them on demand later. You can see the list of both upcoming and past webinars here.
Talk to you soon!
