Similar to our cars needing regular oil changes, tire pressure adjustments, or washer fluid top ups, our HPLC systems also need routine maintenance in order to keep them performing at their best. Even if you pay a mechanic to change your oil or a Field Service Engineer to change your pump seals, you should still know how frequently these preventive maintenance activities need to occur.
The goal of this talk is to lay a strong and broad foundation from which to build a better understanding of your own HPLC systems and their specific maintenance needs.
