What Our Students Say

"Dr. Polite's courses are incredible, they are very hands on with instrumentation and I strongly believe that regardless of your level of knowledge with GC or HPLC, 99% of you will walk away with something you can apply to your own studies/experiments/methods etc. If your work will pay for it or if you have any interest at all, GO TAKE THE CLASS!"

"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."

Tiffany Liden, Ph.D.
Postdoc Researcher, Adjunct Professor  Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, The University of Texas at Arlington
"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."

"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."

"Clearly explained topic with excellent detail, gave examples of applications relevant to my job application."

"Great Instructor and staff! I enjoyed the "hands-on" part of this course. This course really broke down GC and the fundamentals."
Carla Reguen
Forensic Chemist Wilmington Police Dept. Crime Lab
"This course was extremely helpful in teaching the fundamentals of GC. The instructor presented the material in a fashion that was easily understandable."
