Training

InProcess-LSP offers unique training courses that combine theory and practical experience for Near Infrared (NIR) application development within the pharmaceutical and life science industry. Besides a Basic Training for new users or those who want to know more about NIR and its applications, two advanced 3 day training courses are available: Method Development & Validation and a dedicated PAT training ‘Blend Uniformity Monitoring and Control’.

In the advanced courses, participants will get valuable hands-on experience by working with actual samples and NIR analyzers in our lab facilities. They will experience typical hurdles encountered in development of successful NIR methods. Additionally, regulatory guidance and regulations applicable for pharma and high-end life science methods will be integrated. InProcess-LSP aims to provide trainings at the highest standards and provides opportunity to include personal learning objectives.

Training courses are organized for a small group of participants (5 to 9 for advanced courses) and are led by two or three trainers to ensure sufficient support for every participant. A certificate and in-house developed training materials are provided. Spoken language of the advanced trainings is English, international participants are very welcome to join. The basic 1 day training is available in English and Dutch.
