What You Will Learn

This certificate comprises of four courses that introduces the participants the principles of mass spectrometry and its instrumentation and quality standards, change control and deviations. Attain skills in the detailed operation of High Performance Liquid Chromatography.

Liquid Chromatography

This module will cover the detailed operations of HPLC, UHPLC, and its associated detectors (DAD, UV, RI, etc), from method development (sample preparation, column selection, solvent selection, gradients, baseline correction), data analysis (internal and external standards, normalization) to method validation and troubleshooting. Participants will have industrial case studies to discuss and troubleshoot, samples to analyze and report to prepare as a group project.

Mass Spectrometry

This module will cover the principles of mass spectrometry and its instrumentation in LC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-MS and MS-MS. Participants will also learn about the interpretation of mass spectra and the application of mass spectrometry in fields such as chemical and petrochemical, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical, environmental and water and forensic chemistry.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

This module will introduce GLP (Good Laboratory Practices), quality standards, standard templates, CAPA (corrective and preventive action), change control and deviations. Participants will also learn about the statistical analysis of laboratory data (SPC and SQC) and the writing of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), protocols and summary reports.

Project II
This module gives participants an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge on a case study project based on the PDCs covered in the semester, prepare a report and make a presentation.
