Join us for 1-hour webinar is aimed at analysts with a good understanding of GC-MS on 8th May 2013. The webinar will work through planning the GC-MS method development and then focus on the different parameters themselves, where to start, how to choose initial parameters and then how to progress the optimisation. The webinar, organised by our partners at Separation Science, will be presented by the Director and Senior Consultant of Anthias Consulting, Diane Turner.
Anthias Consulting Director and Senior Consultant, Diane Turner will be attending the ARABLAB 2013 Exhibition to be held in Dubai, UAE, at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC) on the 10th-11th March 2013.

Obtaining the best resolution for the method is critical for accurate qualitative and quantitative analysis, especially where chromatographic resolution is relied upon with standard GC detectors, as there is no MSD to take advantage of analytical resolution.
The latest Complete GC & GC-MS course, which took place between 20 and 24 September 2010 at the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK., marked a full transition to the Anthias growing team. With Stuart Pattinson as the course presenter, we're delighted to report consistent ratings of 5/5 given by attendees when rating the knowledge of the presenter, proving the high standard of Anthias GC & GC-MS courses.
Sample introduction or the GC inlet parameters are very often overlooked when developing a GC or GC-MS method, but these parameters are so powerful that they can result in success or total failure of an application and as a result are also the main area for troubleshooting and maintenance within the GC system.
Would you believe that only a small percentage of GC and GC-MS instruments are used to their full capabilities? This is the same for the data analysis systems.
In today's global climate of recession we really need to be making the most of what we have with optimised methods (both the analysis and the data processing) for high throughput and accurate analyses.
