Course description

The Basics of Deconvolution (AMDIS) course is a one-day advanced training course that teaches how to operate NIST's Automated Mass Spectral Deconvolution and Identification System (AMDIS) software for the processing of complex GC-MS data that has been previously acquired. The course mixes presentations with demonstrations on the software by the course instructor in order to get a good grasp of it's capabilities in performing deconvolution.

The course details the theory of mass spectral deconvolution to unravel a mixed mass spectrum found in complex samples which has limited chromatographic resolution and discusses the use of analytical resolution for the confirmation or identification of co-eluting peaks. The course delves into the installation and provides an overview of the AMDIS software.

The course reviews various types of deconvolution analysis and data processing that is available discussing in detail the Simple, Retention Index, Retention Time, Calibration Data, Performance Check and Internal Standard modes. It reviews the types and use of the AMDIS libraries including their creation and building upon.

At the end of the day, the delegates will have gained the knowledge of how to operate the AMDIS software to undertake analytical resolution to perform deconvolution and obtained cleaned-up mass spectra and undertake data extraction, manipulation & reporting.

Pre-requisites

Requires fundamental knowledge of GC-MS.
