Gas Chromatography Training Course – AKA GC Bootcamp

Looking for a gas chromatography training course?  Are you a GC purist? This may be the GC course for you!

If you only want to learn gas chromatography then start here on your learning path to master GC.  Interested in HPLC too?  Then start with our LC/GC Bootcamp!

Gas Chromatography Bootcamp



After this 4-day course, every student knows more about gas chromatography than 80% of the professionals who do GC for a living! That is a bold statement to make, but it’s true. Axion has been providing the finest professional chromatography training to every major pharmaceutical, chemical, and petroleum company in the US for more than 25 years. These companies are repeat customers because the participants love our classes and their employers love the value provided by well-trained and more productive employees.

This course is designed for GC users of ANY familiarity level who want practical laboratory experience and thorough understanding of the technique fundamentals. By the end of this course, students will feel comfortable operating any modern GC and be able to choose the correct oven temperature, flow rate, column length, diameter, film thickness, and stationary phase because they will thoroughly understand the theory behind each of these important parameters. As an added bonus, the instructor makes it both simple and fun to learn. All of the classroom instruction is reinforced with plenty of hands-on time with the GCs in the lab.

Every participant will have the opportunity to build a calibration curve, develop complex methods from scratch, and optimize GC methods to separate 10 compounds in less than 1 minute! No prior experience in advanced mathematics, theoretical chemistry, or physics is required for this course. All students need is a desire to learn GC.

Plus we provide awesome lunches every day!



What Our Students Say

{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.
Joe Block
{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.
Klleber Oliveira
Senior Scientist, Quality Control USANA Health Sciences Inc.
{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.
