Trainees receiving training certificates from Dr Deepak Bhanot and Dr Praveen Baliyan
Close on the heels of the training program on Basic Analytical Techniques and Microbiology testing the training program on Advanced Analytical Techniques was attended by three senior laboratory chemists from the same organization. The topics covered included Method selection and validation alongwith a host of advanced analytical techniques such as Spectroscopy, HPLC, GC,GC-MS,LC-MS and AAS followed by hands-on laboratory exposure to the techniques.
All the techniques covered in the program contribute significantly in analysis of pharmaceutical and food products. The contributory role of chromatographic techniques is well acknowledged and in combination with mass spectroscopic detection it is possible to identify the constituents of complex mixtures and detect them at levels never imagined before. Similarly spectroscopy also contributes to rapid analysis of both organic and inorganic constituents of foods and pharmaceutical products. The role of method selection and validation was also emphasized through special coverage as al the sophistication of analytical techniques is of little value if careful thought is not applied before adoption of the selected analysis method.
The program provided an opportunity to share experiences with the trainees and in turn they picked up some useful tips to make effective use of the advanced techniques in their organization.
It is a matter of pride to be associated with EFMHACA this time as well and hope it will contribute to forging longstanding collaboration between the two acclaimed institutions.
