    Mr. Muralidharan V, who is now working as a Junior Research Fellow in the Center, has attended and participated in the two months operators training for Agilent LC/MS: Agilent OpenLAB Chemstation, Agilent 1290 uHPLC, Agilent 6340 LC/MS Iontrap, Agilent 8354 UV-Visible Spectrometer held at the Amrita Agilent Analytical Research Center, Amrita School of Biotechnology. Dr.Walter Schrenk headed the operator training course and the participant was given hands on training for running and analyzing the samples using the above mentioned instruments.


  4. Workshop on High Performance Liquid Chromatography Techniques (September 9 – 12, 2013)

    Headed by Dr.Walter Schrenk, Ms.Hima and Ms.Hitha, the former students of Amrita School of Biotechnology (B. Sc. Biotechnology 2009 - 2012 Batch) attended and participated in a three day workshop organized by Amrita  Analytical Research Center. Dr.Walter provided lectures on the basics of the HPLC Instrumentation, Mass Spectrometry and UV-Visible Spectroscopy and the participants were given hands on training for the same.


  5. Workshop on UV-Visible Spectroscopy (October 18, 2013)

    The M. Sc. Biotechnology and M. Sc. Microbiology students (2013 - 2015) at Amrita School of Biotechnology were given training on how to use the UV-Visible Spectrometer for detecting the Absorption Maxima of different compounds including Chlorophyll, Beta-carotene and Asta- xanthene. Apart from that the students were given training on how to measure and calculate the concentration of various unknown samples. Moreover the students were given a brief lecture on the basics of the Instrumentation and its operating procedures that enables them to analyze various samples by themselves.
