Bookmark and Share


This unique, 5-day lecture and hands-on laboratory course is the most comprehensive training available for the analyst using chromatography / mass spectrometry. Taught by a team of expert instructors, participants will leave with an understanding of key mass spectrometry principles, practical lab experience, and reference materials, enabling them to put their newly-acquired knowledge into use immediately. Instruments from the world’s leading mass spectrometry vendors are used in the course, giving attendees the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation. The lab experiments are real-life, practical exercises that reinforce the fundamental concepts presented in lecture. Participants work in teams to conduct exercises, interpret experimental data and present their results. The course is a true collaborative learning experience—students are encouraged to ask questions and learn from each other, as well as the instructors. Who Should Attend: Scientists and analysts wishing to quickly deepen their practical LC/MS and GC/MS knowledge and experience Class size is limited to 26 students, so REGISTER NOW to ensure your spot. Partial List of Topics Covered: • Operating basics of LC/MS and GC/MS and ionization techniques • Mass spectral interpretation strategies • Practical advice on operating and maintaining mass spectrometers • Designing and optimizing GC/MS and LC/MS methods and experiments • Using computer tools to analyze LC/MS, GC/MS and MS/MS data Course Location: University of the Pacific, Stockton, California (near San Francisco/Oakland/Sacramento)
