Comprehensive GC-MS Training (Agilent SQMS with MSD ChemStation)
Event Jan 21 - Jan 24, 2020
The Open University
Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This four-day course introduces the fundamental theory of quadrupole GC-MS along with the operation of the Agilent single quadrupole MS using MSD ChemStation software. The first part of the course covers the function and operation of the individual components of the Agilent SQMS instrumentation as well as the important MS parameters. Attendees will gain practical experience of performing maintenance of each MS component and troubleshooting an instrument. The software part of the course introduces the Agilent MSD ChemStation software for instrument control, data acquisition and analysis. Delegates will learn how to install, set-up and operate the software, covering types of tuning methods, how to create full scan and SIM methods and gain an understanding of each method type, how to analyse individual and multiple samples and how to undertake data analysis. There will be an introduction to macros and retention time locking and delegates will also learn about method maintenance. The course combines a mixture of classroom based presentations with hands-on hardware and software lab exercises, to give you comprehensive training.
