4-day Comprehensive GC Training (Thermo TRACE GC with Xcalibur)

15 Dec 2014 - 18 Dec 2014 - Open University Milton Keynes

Bookmark and Share

The 4-day Comprehensive GC Training course introduces the fundamental theory of GC along with the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of the Thermo TRACE Gas Chromatograph using Xcalibur software. This course includes an introduction to gas chromatography, Xcalibur configuration, an introduction to Xcalibur, data acquisition and data analysis. It will discuss gas supply and handling; split/splitless and PTV inlets; capillary columns; Flame Ionisation Detector; the autosampler; PC & data system; creating methods; integration and reporting; quantitation and calibrations; and sequences. This course also covers troubleshooting and maintenance of the autosampler, inlet, column, detector and data systems. It combines a mixture of classroom based presentations with hands-on hardware and software lab exercises, to give you comprehensive training. You can attend all 4 days of the course for a complete training solution. Alternatively you can attend the 2-day Comprehensive GC Hardware Training (Thermo TRACE GC) course or 2-day Comprehensive GC Software Training (Thermo Xcalibur) course for specific training on hardware or software. Who is this course for? This course is primarily for analysts and technicians responsible for the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of Thermo gas chromatographs.
