About the Practichem™ Series of On-Site Training Seminars
This series has been developed over many years with the idea that modern analytical laboratories require training programs that provide one or more of the following benefits:

  • Advanced training on specialized topics for senior staff.

  • Practical training that fills in the “gaps” between academic theory and laboratory practice.

  • “Refresher” courses for both new and experienced laboratory staff.

  • Focused presentations that don't take staff away from their jobs for long periods.

These seminars emphasize the development of practical chemistry skills by minimizing the discussion of theoretical principles and emphasizing the application of chemistry concepts. The topics have been chosen to provide instruction in the key techniques that are vital to the generation of high quality laboratory data. In addition, the seminars include the important practical information that is either lacking or not fully presented in other, more traditional courses. Hundreds of students, from every industry that employs analytical chemists, have benefited from this seminar series.

These are vendor-independent seminars. We are trying to explain technologies, not sell them!

General Analytical Topics

Understanding the Calibration Curve (½ Day)
This seminar provides a complete set of instructions on how to set up and evaluate any analytical calibration system, with an emphasis on providing the highest quality results with a minimum of effort. Students will learn the fundamentals of linear regression, different options for preparing data, what calibration options are available, and simple procedures and tests for evaluating calibration data.

Practical Laboratory Statistics (½ Day)
This course provides a practical discussion of statistical principles, with very little statistical "theory". The content focuses on the most common statistical techniques that are used in evaluating analytical chemistry data. Students will learn about calculating common statistical parameters, properly rejecting data points, spotting trends, and comparing sets of data. These topics are taught by working through real laboratory examples.

Integrating Chromatographic Peaks (1/2 Day)
Integration of chromatographic peaks is a critical step in the generation of chromatographic data. Errors in integration will result in a corresponding error in calculated results. Unfortunately, most analysts have little or no training in the proper procedures for peak integration. In this seminar, we will teach you how integrators work and provide some guidelines on the proper way to integrate poorly resolved peaks.
