A typical laboratory workflow comprises of sample collection, sample preparation, introduction to the instrument, analysis, data review, and finally, data reporting, where sample preparation has always been considered the bottleneck and rate-limiting step. Current advanced instrumentation greatly increase your capability to analyze various samples, considering the required sensitivity, selectivity, reliability, and feasibility of complex sample testing. Therefore, the sample preparation step has been minimized to reduce time, cost, and complexity, improve the universal applicability, and it has been reduced to be just good enough.

There are several hidden dangers in sub-optimal sample preparation, such as wasted time, instrument maintenance/failure issues, and inaccurate data, that can arise and affect your overall success. These hidden dangers can be eliminated or greatly minimized by proper sample preparation workflow strategies. This improvement can be realized without having to retrain your scientist, making large capital expenditures, or having to rewrite your standard operating procedures (SOPs). The following Webinar will discuss how various samples with high lipid content are prepared with a simplified sample prep workflow utilizing Captiva EMR-Lipid.

Participants will learn:

  • How to minimize the hidden dangers of sub-optimal sample preparation
  • A simplified workflow for complex samples with high lipid content
  • An understanding of the key applications where Captiva EMR—Lipid can maximize results and boost productivity

Who should attend:

  • Lab Managers of contract, government, or QA/QC labs
  • Analytical chemists who develop methods for biological or food samples
  • Graduate students and post-docs working on environmental, pharmaceutical, forensic, or food analyses
