Each part of the liquid chromatograph will be considered starting, in this session, by considering any precautions which must be taken when preparing a mobile phase - this includes selecting the correct purity of solvent, the appropriate buffer, and the essential steps included in mobile phase preparation such as filtering and degassing.
Next we will consider the pumping system and autosampler. The components which make up these parts of the instrument will be detailed along with some basic troubleshooting for when problems arise.
