GC GC-MS Best practices in method development/operation and troubleshooting

25 September 2023 09:00 - 29 September 2023 16:00, Kisumu, Kenya

What will you learn on this course?
This course provides the theory of gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) essential to any participant, along with hands-on practical elements in the laboratory to practice and re-enforce the theoretical knowledge. These courses are 20% theory and80% practical in a lab environment. This course addresses gases and plumbing, sample introduction, analytical columns, GC detectors (FID and ECD), mass-spectrometry and data analysis. The knowledge is then used to create methods, perform injections and change parameters to see the effects. The course discusses the need for maintenance along with practical’s to carry out maintenance on both a GC and a GC-MS system such as liquid auto sampler, inlet, columns, FID/ECD and Quadruple MS including tuning and ion source cleaning.
A day is spent on troubleshooting a GC or GC-MS instrument and learning what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instruments and data analysis software. 

Advantages of the Training Program:
GC-MS finds application in fields like Medicine, criminal forensics, environmental monitoring and cleaning, explosives detection, etc. Thus the training is beneficial for the people who are working industries which relates to chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, oils, agriculture, cosmetics, analytical testing laboratories and many others.
