In addition, if the number of subscribers after four weeks is below the norm; this minor may possibly be withdrawn. So if you are interested, sign up immediately!

Subscribe in time!

For HAN students it means that, in case of cancellation of the first choice AFTER the period of decision (this takes a full month) they may re-subscribe for the still available minors.

Even then: Once a minor is full, it is closed!

Analytical chemistry is a profession of its own. Developing and validating analytical methods requires knowledge and skill. Do you want to increase your knowledge? Get more insight into the statistics of validation studies? And receive statistical tools to process results? Then follow this course!


The programme covers analytical techniques and their development and validation. It is a continuation of the course Qualitative and Quantitative Analytical Techniques in Chemical Research. During this course, you will carry out scientific research within 2 projects. One project focuses on quality assurance of an analysis, validation and optimisation. The other focuses on method development of an analytical method. You can choose which method or analysis you work on within the projects.

You will work with instrumental techniques such as GC, HPLC and AAS. You will also get to know gel electrophoresis and LC-MS. The projects are supported by theory subjects in the field of (instrumental) analytical chemistry and statistics. You carry out a literature study and conclude the research projects with a report and a presentation.
