The course, now in its 27th consecutive year, is being held at the University of the Pacific Department of Chemistry in Stockton, California, east of the San Francisco Bay Area. is hosting an intensive, five-day  Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry Principles and Practice training workshop August 5-9, 2013.  

This unique lecture and hands-on laboratory course is the most comprehensive training available for chromatography / mass spectrometry analysts.  Taught by partners Frederick Klink and Professor O. David Sparkman, 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 suppliers support the course, giving attendees hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation,” said Klink, founder of and a recognized expert on LC/MS method development.  Klink adds, “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 and staff.”  

Sparkman, who brings his world-renowned mass spectral interpretation expertise to the class, says, “Course participants are immersed in mass spectrometry the entire week.  Like a fitness boot camp, attendees will be challenged, encouraged, and emerge at the end with new confidence and skills.”

The course is for scientists new to mass spec or those who wish to deepen their practical LC/MS and GC/MS knowledge and experience. Participants will come away with skills that will enable them to improve their performance in the laboratory and enhance their career marketability. Class size is limited to 26 attendees to ensure personalized attention.
