At the end of September, the 33rd International Symposium on Chromatography was held in Budapest. It is one of the world's largest chromatography symposia, which takes place every two years. This year's event was traditionally attended by a large Czech delegation, including a group of analytical chemists from our faculty.
Our faculty was successfully represented not only by three lectures (prof. Ing. Michal Holčapek, Ph.D. – UHPSFC/MS in Lipidomic Quantitation: Towards the Clinical Screening of Pancreatic Cancer; doc. Ing. Petr Česla, Ph.D. – Novel Approaches Minimizing Dilution in Comprehensive Two-dimensional Liquid Chromatography; Ing. Ondřej Peterka, Ph.D. – H/D Pooling of Benzoyl Derivatives: Internal Standard per Each Analyte for Lipidomic Quantitation by RP-UHPLC/MS), but also a series of poster presentations.
Poster contribution by Ing. Tomáš Hájek, Ph.D. "Three-loop Modulator for Comprehensive Two-dimensional Liquid Chromatography" was selected in a large international competition and awarded the main prize for the best poster. The research presented on the poster is carried out as part of the "Self-adaptive multidimensional separations" grant project, financed by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic (researcher doc. Ing. Petr Česla, Ph.D.).
Pardubice analysts will also participate in the organization of the 35th edition of this symposium series, which will be held for the first time in the entire history of the symposium in 2026 in the Czech Republic, in Prague from September 7 to 10, 2026. The chairman of the symposium will be prof. Ing. Michal Holčapek, Ph.D., together with prof. PharmDr. Lucie Nováková, Ph.D. (Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové, Charles University).
