Traditionally, the HPLC series of meetings offers a scientific program at the highest level. This draws leading researchers from around the globe. However, with about 300,000 active instruments in use in labs, the user base is probably a similar number. Most of the users are competent in the routine tasks. However, HPLC technology is growing and changing. New applications are frequently reported at a rate of several per day. Column technology is also advancing, with new ultrafast, high-resolution capillary columns just over the horizon.
Thus there is a need for background tutorials that bring the audience up to speed so they can understand the research reports, both lectures and posters. The Tutorial Program is part of the main scientific meeting.
With several hundred thousand users of HPLC globally, there are many new scientists entering the field. What better way to come up to speed than to take a short course? The organizers of HPLC 2013 have selected three. The faculty have decades of experience presenting these courses. These precede the scientific program. Thus, pupils can expect to greatly improve their proficiency in HPLC by attending.
