Successful Complete GC & GC-MS course at The Open University
News Oct 14, 2009
This 5-day course was deemed to be vital to understanding a gas chromatograph with one delegate stating it was the most useful course she had ever been on. The most enjoyable parts of the course were the practical exercises in troubleshooting chromatograms and the discussions on case studies and working examples when developing methods.
Here is the feedback from some of our delegates:
“I understand better my gas chromatograph! Most interesting topic: Method
development/optimisation; most useful topic: maintenance/troubleshooting. Very
well presented and the most useful course I have ever been on”. Suzana Senicar, Analytical researcher, Slovenia.
“I found all of the course very interesting. I enjoyed the total hydrocarbon in
water analysis which boosted my knowledge, and I feel better fulfilled”. Lab
“I found the whole course most interesting especially the question section and
discussing the various methods. The most interesting topic: GC/MS; most useful topic: troubleshooting”. Adnan Zulfiqar, PhD. research student.
“The presentation/communication was very good with concise and essential
information. The discussions on case studies and working examples were most
enjoyable. Most interesting topic: application of practical techniques; most useful topic: difficult/dirty samples”. Simona Nicoara, Research Fellow.

Comet "Chury's" Late BirthNews
Comets which consist of two parts, like Chury, can form after a catastrophic collision of larger bodies. Such collisions may have taken place in a later phase of our solar system, which suggests that Chury can be much younger than previously assumed. This is shown through computer simulations.READ MORE
