  • Overview

    Most people who follow a scientific career will use instruments at some time to make measurements of various
    physical and chemical properties. Even those who follow a non-scientific career will often need to interpret
    data and assess its quality and if it was recorded in a sensible way using the right instrument. This course
    is designed to introduce the operating principles of instrumental analysis. There is also a significant focus
    on HPLC, which is the major technique used in pharmaceutical analysis.
