Full automation from sample preparation to result for semi-volatile contaminants in various water matrices, automation decreased the direct (and indirect) lab costs to achieve optimal analytical results,...

Environmental laboratories are always looking for ways to save costs without compromising analytical results in terms of sensitivity, robustness or quality controls.

To minimize the cost and efforts in the lab, the ideal analytical system typically needs to be able to decrease manual handling and the amount of chemicals used for sample preparation. In addition, increasing the availability and optimal use of the analytical systems is a must.

Separation Science, in collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific, is offering an on-demand presentation describing fully automated GC-MS/MS analysis of environmental contaminants in surface waters. In this on-demand webinar, the following is covered:

  • Full automation from sample preparation to result for semi-volatile contaminants in various water matrices
  • How automation decreased the direct (and indirect) costs of the lab to achieve optimal analytical results for the customers
  • What is needed to implement these savings in your lab
  • How the new Thermo ScientificTM TSQTM 9000 GC-MS/MS helped to achieve high sensitivity and how the system opens the doors to future possibilities.

Cees is joined by Inge de Dobbeleer (EU Regional Marketing Manager for GC and GC-MS, Thermo Fisher Scientific), whose experience spans working for a commercial environmental laboratory to working as an analytical specialist setting up methodologies and applications on gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry systems for customers across the European countries.

The key learning outcomes from this on-demand presentation are:

  • solutions for organic contaminant analysis and resources
  • organic contaminant analysis workflow from sample preparation to data reporting
  • efficiency and productivity improvement with cost reduction

If you're a lab analyst or operator who uses GC-MS/MS systems for organic analysis, or work as a contract lab or utility lab manager or director who looks for optimization of productivity with low cost then this on-demand presentation is aimed at you.
