Sample Prep Summer School: Who should attend

Summer School: Automation and miniaturization in sample preparation

Summer School 2023:
Automation and miniaturization in sample preparation

Why do you need to attend this course?

First, on-line SPE using column switching or hyphenation of low-pressure techniques for sample pre-treatment to separation techniques are still not widely explored and we believe to offer a valuable introduction to these techniques and a new perspective for everyone working in the field of LC separations. By example, new applications of SFE are currently arising as green alternatives to solvent-based extractions of solid matrices. At second, we have focussed the course scope to green ways of extraction and are positive that the selected sample-prep techniques correspond to the modern trends in miniaturization, e.g., lowest consumption of organic solvents or the use of green extractants such as carbon dioxide or deep eutectic solvents. This trend is applicable in every analytical laboratory and is a valuable contribution to decrease our environmental footprint, work safety, and responsibility.

If you feel that green approaches will strengthen your research or routine laboratory work, we warmly invite to get a thorough overview on the advantages and perspectives these techniques offer in form of lectures and practical demonstrations and tasks with experienced lecturers and gain valuable expertise. Take advantage of this possibility to get a close look to front-end instrumentation, to find out how to develop and optimize your extraction methods, and to discuss critical parameters that could come in your own work applying the presented principles.

Who should attend?

This course is intented mainly for Ph.D. students but pre-graduate students with a good knowledge and interest on sample preparation are welcome, too. As a second group we believe that postdoctoral scientists, and even more experienced researchers who could apply such modern approaches in their daily work will appreciate detailed explanations and practical tasks.

Managers and supervisors of analytical laboratories and R&D staff are welcome to join us to see green extraction approaches and how to develop and apply sample preparation approaches corresponding with new and up-to-date trends. The selected applications can be transferred to other working fields, too, including pharmaceutical quality control, biotechnological field, or biological matrix analysis.
