Chromatography Column Packing: Foundations and Applications Course

A well-packed chromatography column is critical to chromatographic separations. Low quality chromatography column packing leads to uneven mobile phase distribution and poor resin contacting ultimately leading to lower yields, less separation and reduced product quality. This course is designed to explain and demonstrate the factors that influence column packing from both a theoretical and hands-on perspective.

By attending this three-day course you will learn:

  • Fluid mechanics of flow in packed beds
  • Theoretical basis of mass transfer in packed beds
  • The effects of incompressible versus compressible chromatography resin
  • Different packing techniques
  • Analytical methods for determining column packing quality
  • Packing parameter selection to ensure a robust, reproducible packing procedure
