Learn the essential theory of Gas Chromatography and GC-MS along with hands-on practicals in the laboratory.

The course covers gases and plumbing, sample introduction, analytical columns, GC detectors (FID and ECD), mass-spectrometry and data analysis. This knowledge will then be put into practice to create methods, perform injections and change parameters to see the effects.

The course discusses why maintenance is required and how to spot when maintenance is needed along with practicals to carry out maintenance on a gas chromatograph and a mass spectrometer.

The course teaches strategies for troubleshooting a GC or GC-MS instrument and learning what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instruments and data analysis software.
