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.


The world’s leading mass spectrometry vendors support 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

·         and much, much more!
