Significance of IP-RP Mobile Phase in Oligonucleotide Analysis
HPLC Troubleshooting
Chiral Chromatography Screening 101
Speaker: Namrata Saxena - Technical Manager, Phenomenex
Speaker: Kevin Zhao - Senior Technical Specialist, Phenomenex
Speaker: - Zandra Baja - Applications Scientist 
Key Learning Points:

  • Evaluate the significance of mobile phase composition in IP-RP methods for Oligonucleotides characterization
  • Learn the significance of pH and other mobile phase additives and how optimization of mobile phase can lead to improved sensitivity of Oligonculeotides in LC-MS methods
  • Gain an understanding on how proper sample preparation will contribute to improving sensitivity
Key Learning Points:

  • Minimize problems before they occur by performing routine system maintenance 
  • Approach problem solving and troubleshooting in a logical way 
  • Diagnose cause 
  • Identify possible solutions 
  • Document deviations from “normal” behavior as they occur 
  • Keep notes during troubleshooting 
  • Troubleshooting is a lifelong learning process 
  • Use specific way to protect the column to prevent the LC problems 
Key Learning Points:

  • What is chiral chromatography, chiral screening, why do it, what are the benefits... 
  • What the chiral screening process looks like  
  • Scope, deliverables, and timelines for chiral screening 
  • How to request chiral screening services 
Who Should Attend:

  • Any LC users who are working with Oligonucleotide or Nucleic Acid characterization methods 
  • Scientists working with Gene Therapy methods or anyone working in Biopharma 
Who Should Attend:

  • Any LC users who would like to get tips on extend the column lifetime, and troubleshoot for some general LC method issues. 
Who Should Attend:

  • LC users who would like to get tips on a chiral screening process for method development 
  • Scientists in academia or pharmaceutical industry with the need to rapidly develop a method for separation and characterization of their chiral compounds
