Customer Training and Education in HPLC by YMC Europe GmbH

For a modern company continuing education is an absolute must. This is independent from the position one holds, training will improve the skills of the lab manager and the lab assistant in the same manner.

In the complex and cost intensive field of liquid chromatography improved skills will result in significantly greater efficiency, safety and reliability in the daily work and finally improved sales. In addition to the topics given below, YMC training courses can provide an overview of, for example, the basics of HPLC, bio separations or method development.
