Industries That Use HPLC & GC 

Chromatography, HPLC and GC, has many applications throughout the chemical industry. For over 20 years, Axion has provided specialized training to every major pharmaceutical, chemical, and petroleum company in the US. 

Chromatography Applications In Pharmaceuticals

Chromatography Applications In Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceutical industry is huge in chromatography because in that industry they must by law analyze their raw materials to prove that there's nothing bad in it.
Chromatography Applications In Forensics

Imagine that you are watching CSI, and the lab technicians run a sample by GC-MS or HPLC in order to get the answer and catch the bad guy. That is an example of a chromatography application in forensics.

How is homeland security related to HPLC and GC? Think about this scenario:  You need to make sure that there are no explosives in the suitcase. How do we find an explosive?

This is a new industry - for Axion Labs - and that is exciting from an analytical chemistry perspective. The cannabis labs popping up all over the country have a couple of challenges.


What Our Students Say


Hi I just wanted to take a minute to tell you what an amazing course Axion’s LC/GC Bootcamp is. I was fortunate enough to attend Lee’s course in the summer of 2021.  I’m a trained chromatographer with a focus in mass spectrometry.  Despite having a PhD in the field with years of study behind me, I was able to garner new information to expand my knowledge base. I highly encourage anyone to attend his course if you are afforded the opportunity.

{Over the course of my career, I have attended several GC and HPLC trainings. This was the first training in which I left the course with a level of understanding that I could maximize the equipment. Rather than leaving with a tip or a trick for method development, Dr. Polite provided a complete roadmap to method development from theory to application in the training. It was enjoyable to go from the art of method development to the science of method development. For anyone looking to learn GC/HPLC, increase their lab skill sets, or make the transition from experienced user to expert; I would highly recommend this course.

{I'm glad I had the opportunity to attend two of the courses Axion offers. Dr. Lee Polite is one of the best teachers I ever met and his knowledge over the LC subject is amazing. I definitely recommend anyone that wants to learn about chromatography to attend the courses offered by this institute.

{The team at Axion Labs offers a level of personalized and high-quality instruction that is nearly impossible to find anywhere else. Given how challenging of a technique chromatography is, I was blown away by the ability of every instructor to break it down into lessons that were easy to understand and retain. I came into an Axion class knowing the bare minimum about chromatography and left with the tools/confidence needed to solve various chromatography problems in the lab.

{...was a game changer for my career. It single handedly helped me get every job I have ever had.  I was in metrology at APP pharmaceuticals. It helped me move to AD at a startup and later a third party field service tech and now owning my own service business. I am very thankful for my experience.
