HTC-13 will run conjointly with the 3rd Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques for Sample Preparation (HTSP-3), because of the critical importance of sample preparation techniques in combination with chromatographic approaches and separation techniques in general. HTSP-3 will start 1 day before HTC-13 (on January 28th 2014) and both symposia will overlap on the Wednesday.
HTC-13 will cover all fundamental aspects, instrumental developments and applications of hyphenated chromatographic techniques.These include hyphenation between chromatography and detection systems (with focus on mass spectrometry), multi-column (multi-dimensional) chromatography, and the coupling between sample-preparation and separation techniques.Many aspects of chromatography will be addressed, including automation and robotization, miniaturization and microfabricated analytical devices, high-pressure and high-temperature LC, and new detection techniques.
For HTC-13 the terminology “Hyphenated Chromatographic Analyzers” has now been adapted to “Separation technology” to emphasize the importance of also non-chromatographic separation techniques and the hyphenation thereof to a multitude of detectors, online-assays, advanced data interpretation, etc.
HTC-13 will be covering both fundamental subjects as innovative applications based on the most innovative hyphenated techniques, which will be reflected in the 3 parallels sessions which will come to pass throughout the congress. An overview of the main topics which will be covered during this congress is given here:
- Fundamental strategies forthe hyphenation of modern separation techniques with sample preparation and advanced detection systems.
- Emerging detection strategies compatible with current separation techniques
- The marriage of hyphenated techniques with process analytical technology
- Applications in life sciences, including pharmaceutical analysis, biosystems research, and bio-analysis
- Relevance in food science, including the analysis of contaminants and residues and of flavor and fragrances
- Sustainable society, including environmental science
- Clinical and/or Forensic applications
- Chemometrics and data-analysis
- Chemical and Petrochemical industry
- New developments in column technology
- Hyphenated techniques for Natural products, Flavors and Fragrance analysis
- Applicability in Omics (metabolomics, proteomics, lipidomics, …)
- Hyphenated techniques and polymers analysis.
