LC-MS Training

LC-MS/MS for Chromatographers

Self-paced online course with validated learning and certificate of completion

Analytical Training Solutions | Separation Science

With the introduction of the mass spectrometer (MS) as a practical detector for high-performance liquid chromatography (LC or HPLC), LC-MS began to be used for routine applications. One form of LC-MS uses a tandem MS (LC-MS/MS), that has become the go-to instrument for quantitative analysis of drugs in biological matrices in the pharmaceutical laboratory. As they have become more widely used and understood, LC-MS and LC-MS/MS have found their way into environmental applications, synthetic chemistry, protein analysis, and many other areas. LC-MS/MS has moved from a technique available only to skilled experts in both HPLC and MS to a routine tool usable much as any other HPLC detector. You will find that this introductory course in LC-MS/MS will give you a good foundation of understanding the technique and how to use it in your daily work. We start out with an overview of different MS techniques and focus the majority of the course on the quadrupole mass spectrometer. You will learn how MS works, how ions are produced and fragmented. Sections focus on qualitative, as well as quantitative analysis. Each part of the process, calibration, tuning, sample preparation, HPLC method development, and MS method development are covered. Many tricks and techniques of practical use are presented.

GC-MS Training

GC-MS for Operators & Developers

Self-paced online course with validated learning and e-certificate of completion

Analytical Training Solutions | Separation Science

‘GC-MS for Operators and Method Developers’ is a specifically designed course for GC users and operators. Fundamental principles, when presented, are done so with a focus on the practical aspects and applications as might be applied on a daily basis. Those who complete this course should be more efficient and comfortable at setting up, troubleshooting, verifying performance, acquiring and interpreting GC-MS data. As with 'Introduction to GC' and 'Intermediate GC' courses, the GC-MS course is organized into chapters and modules. The chapters focus on given themes and the modular structure underneath exposes students to subtopics within time-efficient segments. This course is designed for users of gas chromatographs who are looking to further develop their method development and troubleshooting skills in GC-MS.
