4.0   Procedure for HPLC Calibration

    • Cleaning of HPLC System prior to Calibration :
    • Ensure that the power supply to the instrument is switched ‘OFF’ during cleaning.
    • Clean the instrument with fiber-less tissue paper or dry cotton cloth.
    • Before starting the analysis flush the system with degassed purified water.
    • Clean solvent inlet filter.
    • After every analysis wash the column, then the system with water /appropriate solvent.
    • Empty the waste before it overflows.
  • Calibration of HPLC System:

    • Record all calibration details and data in an issued controlled copy of the calibration record, format no. 1.
    • Flow rate accuracy ( HPLC Pump Calibration) :
    • Disconnect the column and attach the outlet tubing of the pump to the inlet tubing of the detector.
    • Prime all channels of the pump & needle wash with purified water.
    • Take purified water as mobile phase, filtered, and degassed. Connect the union at the place of the column.
    • For 0.5 ml/min, 1.0 ml/min and 2.0 ml/min.: Take a 10 ml class A volumetric flask and ensure that it is thoroughly dry. Prime solvent line A with 100% concentration and prepare the stopwatch to begin
    • When the flow rate and pressure are stable, simultaneously insert outlet tubing into the flask and start the stopwatch.
    • Stop the stopwatch when the bottom of the meniscus reaches the 10 ml mark of the flask, and record the time in seconds.
    • Calculate the flow rate using the following formula;
    • Flow rate measured value = Volume of flask / (measured time in seconds / 60).
