Bioanalytical Troubleshooting One-day Workshop:
Large Molecules using Chromatography


The International Reid Bioanalytical Forum will be holding a one-day training workshop on Thursday 27th September 2018 at Burlington House, Piccadilly in conjunction with the South East Region Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The workshop is aimed at early career scientists, or those transitioning from small to large molecules,who are looking to enhance their bioanalyticalskills. The training session will discuss the issues associated with the analysis of large molecules and cover chromatography-basedchallenges.


  • Abrar Mohammed
    (Director of BioAppSolutions)

Aims and Objectives

To introduce chromatographic challenges associated with large molecules and bioanalytical troubleshooting for biotherapeutics through a combination of lectures and worked examples.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Approach bioanalytical problem solving in a stepwise and structured way
  • Present investigational strategies to project teams or line-management

The course will be an opportunity for participants to work through bioanalytical problems related to protein therapeutics in a workshop environment supported by experienced mentors. Attendees have the opportunity to present their own case studies for discussion (see below).

For more information please email nicola.gray@reading.ac.uk

Call for Abstracts

Applicants are invitedto present a case study as part of the workshop. Successful applicants will be appointed an experienced mentor from within the industry to assist with the preparation of the case study to be presented. It is not necessary that the problem presented as a case study has been already been solved.

Please complete the application form found on the ChromSoc webpage and return it to Catarina.HorroPita@lgcgroup.com before 3rd August 2018.

Student Bursaries

Student supervisors are invited to apply for bursaries (including free attendance and agreed travel expenses for both UK and non-UK residents) on behalf of PhD students carrying out research in bioanalysis or a relevant analytical discipline.
