Starna Expert for Pittcon Course

Monday, September 18, 2006 Print

"Qualification of UV Systems to meet New Pharmaceutical Standards" is once again one of the Short Courses on specialised aspects of Analytical Chemistry in next year's Pittsburgh Conference program.

The validity of chemical measurements is of vital importance in today's regulated environment, and nowhere more than in the pharmaceutical industry, where Ultra-violet and Visible spectrophotometry is one of the most widely used assay and research tools.

The course will be led by John P Hammond of Starna Inc., an international authority on the topic, and is aimed at those tasked with qualifying UV-visible instrumentation, who might include analytical laboratory staff, pharmaceutical metrology staff, or Customer Support personnel from instrument manufacturers.

The course features a unique mix of lectures and practical tutorials using the latest instrumentation from leading UV-Vis manufacturers, and the selection and use of UV-Vis CRM's for instrument qualification.

Pittcon 2007 is at the McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, IL from 25 February to March 1st, 2007.
