2-day Agilent H2294A GC-MS Troubleshooting & Maintenance course

03 Oct 2013 - 04 Oct 2013 - The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK

Bookmark and Share

The objective of this two-day course is to train the operator to perform the maintenance required to ensure the smooth running of the Agilent 6890-5973 and 7890-5975 GC-MS instruments.  The course also discusses the principles of troubleshooting by examining the effects of faults in the system on the chromatographic output. It combines a mixture of classroom based presentations with hands-on hardware and software lab exercises, to give you comprehensive training. This course includes an introduction to troubleshooting and maintenance; tunes & diagnostics; GC considerations; MSD vacuum system; ion source; quadrupole mass filter; detector; and a final "bug" exam.

This course is for someone who has fundamental knowledge of GC-MS and 3-6 months operation experience with the Agilent GC-MS, and who is responsible for routine maintenance of the instrumentation.

Special offer: Book both H4043A and H2294A together and receive a 10% discount.

 “I enjoyed the practical part on how to clean the ion source.” Laboratory Analyst from Kenya.

“Well presented with lots of material and excellent handouts. Enjoyed hands-on approach to material and examining the GC-MS systems.” Glen Woodward, Fujifilm SIS.
