Experimentation in the analytical laboratory can be expensive and labor intensive. Optimization in the laboratory can significantly improve the efficiency of the laboratory staff and reduce the cost of chemicals and operations by reducing the number of experiments required. Optimization allows staff to focus on experimental development and streamlines the laboratory operations.
What You Will Learn
Gain an understanding of the statistics involved in optimization of experimental design. Become familiar with practical, ready-to-use guidelines that can significantly improve your laboratory operations.
Who Should Attend
Anyone responsible for the supervision, operation, or management of an analytical laboratory performing method development and/or validation. Anyone responsible for developing and/or validating analytical methods.
|||Diagnosis of the experimental system|
|||Optimum experimental strategies|
|||Determining if existing data is sufficient or additional experimentation is required|
|||Statistics of optimization|
