4-day Anthias Hands-on Sample Preparation training course

13 Aug 2013 - 16 Aug 2013 - Milton Keynes, UK

Bookmark and Share

What will I learn?
The Hands-On Sample Preparation course combines the 4 individual hands-on sample preparation days covering Headspace, Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME), Thermal Desorption and Pyrolysis.  These courses have a 50:50 mix of theory and hands-on practicals in a lab environment. 

What is covered?
These courses will give you theory for each sample preparation technique and you will perform practical exercises to use this knowledge to create methods, analyse samples and experiment with parameters.

How can I attend?
If you have reasonable gas chromatography experience but want further hands on training on a new sampling technique, then this course is for you. You can come for a 1-, 2-, 3 or 4- day course, learning the techniques you need.

Attendees should have a good knowledge of GC or GC-MS or have attended the Practical Essentials of GC & GC-MS or the Hands-on GC course.
