We aim to convey a clearly Analytical chemistry is an


structured content about general increasingly evolving scientific
(bio-)analytics and data analysis. This field. Understanding analytical
includes chromatographic methods methodology & perspectives
like GC or LC and mass spectrometry, should therefore be part of a
but also basic chemical knowledge. What Why comprehensive scientific education.

Summary
 Material is structured into 3 levels – „Learn, Practice
and Apply“
 Level 1 merges created content of chromatographic
separation, mass spectrometry, basic chemical
knowledge, etc. with external content from different
sources (video tutorials, handbooks, etc.)
 Level 1 provides a basic and comprehensive knowledge
about analytical chemistry and methodology.
 Level 2 deepens the acquired knowledge by providing
the possibility to test different HPLC settings and their
effects on chromatographic separation („learning by
doing“ & „try and error“).
 Level 3 represents a „test situation“, which should
encourage the students to apply their knowledge,
either by answering quiz questions or by planning their
