What will I learn?
The Hands-On Advanced Techniques course combines the 3 advanced GC courses on the Programmable Temperature Vapouriser (PTV), Large Volume Injection (LVI) and GCxGC Software. These courses mix theory and hands-on practicals in a lab environment.

 

What is covered?
If you have difficult or complex samples and wish to explore a variety of sample introduction techniques, learn how to improve sensitivity through increased sample injection volume and to improve the resolution of your analysis through two-dimensional chromatography, then you should attend this course.

 

The PTV course focuses on the added functionalities of PTVs over standard hot inlets as a truly multi-mode inlet. Part of the day will be spent looking at the theory and advantages of cold split and cold splitless injections and the uses for cold-trapping, high final inlet temperatures, large volume injections and additional techniques like thermal desorption and extraction. The remainder of the day will be spent in the lab creating, using and optimising cold injection methods to analyse thermally labile and high molecular weight samples and looking at other PTV techniques.

 

The LVI course combines the theory and advantages behind the different large volume injection techniques with “hands-on” practicals to create, use and optimise LVI methods in the lab.

The GCxGC course enables you to learn the theory and advantages of comprehensive multi-dimensional gas chromatography and then experience the power of GCxGC by analysing and experimenting with some previously acquired data using GC Image software. This course will cover GCxGC and GCImage software and requires knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

 

Individual days: You can come for a 1-, 2- or 3- day course, learning the techniques you need.

 

Is this course for me?

This course will enable you to learn and practice on some advanced and powerful GC techniques which could be very useful for you analysis.
