3-day Hands-on GC-MS Theory, Methods, Maintenance & Troubleshooting


Spend the first day learning the theory of mass-spectrometry and then use this knowledge to create GC-MS methods, perform injections and change MS parameters to see the effects. The second day combines learning the reasons why maintenance is required, what happens if maintenance isn’t performed and the signs of when maintenance is needed along with practicals carrying out maintenance on mass spectrometers. The final day combines learning how to go about troubleshooting GC and GC-MS instruments and what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instruments and data analysis software. This course will cover MSD theory, methods, maintenance and troubleshooting on a GC-quadrupole-MS.
