What will you learn on this course? This course provides the theory of the GC and MS essential to any participant, along with the hands-on practical element in the laboratory to practice and re-enforce the theoretical knowledge. These courses are 50% theory and 50% practical in a lab environment. This course addresses gases and plumbing, sample introduction, analytical columns, GC detectors (FID and ECD), mass-spectrometry and data analysis. The knowledge is then used to create methods, perform injections and change parameters to see the effects. The course discusses the need for maintenance along with practicals to carry out maintenance on both a GC and a GC-MS system such as liquid autosampler, inlet, columns, FID/ECD and quadrupole MS including tuning and ion source cleaning. A day is spent on troubleshooting a GC or GC-MS instrument and learning what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instruments and data analysis software. This course combines the five individual hands-on days covering Gas Chromatography, GC Maintenance, Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry, MS Maintenance and GC-MS troubleshooting. How can I attend? You can attend the 5-day course all at once or, attend the individual days of each course. A FREE glossary on GC & GC-MS is provided with this course!
