Individual 1-Day Anthias Hands-on Courses

From

0

A hands-on course is a one-day course, mixing theory and hands-on practicals with a 50:50 split. A maximum of 4 delegates can attend to ensure the needs of every individual are met and half of your time will be spent in the laboratory. The knowledge you will gain spans both Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry and can be applied to both.

Need to brush on particular techniques? Keen to expand your gas chromatography knowledge? Anthias Consulting offers hands-on courses with experienced practicing analysts.

What is a hands-on course?
You can mix and match hands-on courses to meet your exact requirements, allowing you to bridge the gaps in knowledge you want to fill. See the full range of hands-on courses below or have a look at our classroom-based training courses.

If you'd like to attend multiple days of our hands-on training, please see Complete Hands-on GC & GC-MS, Hands-on Sample Preparation, or Hands-on Advanced GC Techniques.

While these courses aren't a substitute for specific manufacturer training, they are the best way to learn new maintenance techniques, refresh your knowledge or troubleshoot instruments.

Anthias Hands-on Gas Chromatography Theory & Methods
Spend the first part of the day learning the theory of gas chromatography and then use this knowledge to create split and splitless methods, perform manual and liquid autosampler injections and change oven temperature programs to optimise the separation of analytes detected with an FID.

This course will cover the gas supplies, liquid autosampler, hot split and splitless injections, the analytical column and detection by FID and ECD.

This course is suitable for all levels of knowledge

Anthias Hands-on GC Maintenance
This one day course 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 a gas chromatograph.  

This course will cover maintenance of the liquid autosampler, inlet, column and FID/ECD.

This course is suitable for those who have some knowledge of GC and beginners who have attended the “Hands-on” Gas Chromatography course.

Anthias Hands-on Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Theory & Methods
Spend the first part of the 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.

  • This course will cover MSD theory and practicals on the GC-quadrupole-MS.
  • This course is suitable for those with some knowledge of GC.

Anthias Hands-on GC-MS Maintenance
This one day course combines learning the reasons why maintenance is required, what happens if maintenance isn’t performed and the signs of when maintenance needed along with practicals carrying out maintenance on mass spectrometers.

This course will cover maintenance of the quadrupole MS including tuning and ion source cleaning.

This course is suitable for people who have some knowledge of GC-MS and beginners who have attended the “Hands-on” Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry courses.

Anthias Hands-on GC & GC-MS Troubleshooting
This one day course combines learning how to go about troubleshooting a GC-MS instrument and what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instrument and data analysis software.

This course will cover troubleshooting the gas supply, autosampler, inlet, column, GC detector and MS including leaks, tune problems, MS method and identifying if the GC or the MSD is the problem.

This course is suitable for people who have some knowledge of GC-MS and beginners who have attended the Hands-on Gas Chromatography  and Hands-on Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry courses.

Anthias Hands-on Headspace
Spend part of the day learning the theory of static and dynamic headspace and how to modify samples to improve results, then use this knowledge to create HS methods, analyse samples and experiment with parameters to see the effects.

  • This course will cover static and dynamic headspace.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

Anthias Hands-on SPME
Spend part of the day learning the theory of behind Solid-Phase Micro-Extraction and similar techniques like Stir-Bar Sorptive Extraction and how to modify samples to improve results, then use this knowledge to create SPME methods, analyse samples and experiment with parameters to see the effects.

  • This course will cover SPME and related techniques like SBSE.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

Anthias Hands-on Thermal Desorption

This one day course begins with the theory of thermal desorption, types of samples that can be analysed using this technique, types of tube packing materials and how to collect samples. This knowledge is then used to create TD methods, collect and analyse samples and experiment with parameters to see the effects.

  • This course will cover thermal desorption of gas-phase and solid-phase samples.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

Anthias Hands-on Pyrolysis
Spend part of the day learning the theory behind the different pyrolysis techniques and then put this knowledge into practice in the lab, creating pyrolysis methods, analysing samples and changing parameters to see the effects.

  • This course will cover analytical pyrolysis.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

Anthias Hands-on Programmable Temperature Vapourisers
This one day course focuses on the added functionalities of PTVs over standard hot inlets as a truly multi-mode inlet. Part of the day will be spent looking at the theory and advantages of cold split and cold splitless injections and the uses for cold-trapping, high final inlet temperatures, large volume injections and additional techniques like thermal desorption and extraction. The remainder of the day will be spent in the lab creating, using and optimising cold injection methods to analyse thermally labile and high molecular weight samples and looking at other PTV techniques.

  • This course will cover all PTV techniques.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.

Anthias Hands-on Large Volume Injection
This one day course combines the theory and advantages behind the different large volume injection techniques with “hands-on” practicals to create, use and optimise LVI methods in the lab.

  • This course will cover Large Volume Injection (LVI) methods.
  • This course requires some knowledge of GC or GC-MS.
