Integrating Chromatography for Pharmaceutical Analysis

On this course, you will learn about the integration algorithms in common integration software packages and the functions of the parameters involved, so that you can ensure, and demonstrate, that the integration has been applied in the most appropriate manner.


Analytical chemistry techniques based on separation science are critical in the analysis of pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals. In chromatography and electrophoresis, integration is the process of determining the area of a peak and thus enabling quantitative analysis.

The control of the integration process is extremely important, particularly in a GMP environment, because it determines the quality of the final results generated, and it can be manipulated to falsify data. Therefore, we need to be able to demonstrate that there is no risk to data integrity.

Attendees are invited to bring along any real life examples that they would like advice on during the training. These may be discussed during group exercises, or, where intellectual property is an issue, privately with the trainer.
