What will you learn on this course?
This one day course will cover the fundamentals of the Agilent Deconvolution Reporting Software, which is an additional application package to the Agilent GC-MSD Chemstation software and combines the results from the MSD Chemstation, AMDIS and the NIST search engine into a single report. This course will take you through the individual steps to create your own DRS libraries; from creating a retention time locked GC-MS method in MSD Chemstation which produces high quality data; to creating a MSD Chemstation user library which is then converted to a quantitation database and an AMDIS library; to optimising AMDIS settings; creating a DRS method to control the 3 pieces of software; and finally generate and interpret a report. The final part of the course is learning how to maintain and troubleshoot the DRS method, including where to add new compounds. Those attending the DRS course will receive a FREE poster on the DRS guide taught throughout the course.

Who is this course for?
This course is for an experienced user of the Agilent MSD Chemstation who needs to know how to produce automated reports in the laboratory.

Kitchen Utensils Can Spread Bacteria Between Foods
In a recent study researchers found that produce that contained bacteria would contaminate other produce items through the continued use of knives or graters—the bacteria would latch on to the utensils commonly found in consumers' homes and spread to the next item.
GMO Food Animals Should be Judged by Product, Not Process
In a world with a burgeoning demand for meat, milk and eggs, regulatory policies around the use of biotechnologies in agriculture need to be based on the safety and attributes of those foods rather than on the methods used to produce them, says a UC Davis animal scientist.
