Course summary

Course approval

Royal Society of Chemistry approved training logo

This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

What will you learn on this course?

This module looks at the method development process, the parameters to optimise and the order to do them in. How to validate the method and method optimisation are examined in detail. This knowledge, along with the basic knowledge of GC & MS acquired in previous modules is then put to the test in working out best techniques and methods in case studies.

Learning outcomes

  • You will learn strategies for method development.
  • You will learn how to optimise for sensitivity or to reduce carryover.
  • You will learn how to break the method down into tasks.
  • You will learn about the parameters and how to optimise them for each method task.

Who is this course for?

Before attending this course you should have a good knowledge of gas chromatography and the techniques covered in the Practical Essentials of GC & GC-MS.

To gain the full knowledge of gas chromatography it is highly recommended to attend the full Complete GC & GC-MS course.

Feedback from previous attendees of our Virtual Classroom course

"Great overview of method development and covers a wide range of parameters. Separation of analytes of most interest."  May 2022.

"Course content was very interesting and relevant to anyone hoping to expand their GC-MS knowledge.
Lots to learn and apply to all different types of analysis. High standard of knowledge and how things should be done!"
  feedback from The GC & GC-MS Clinic (October 2020).

Feedback from previous attendees of our face-to-face classroom course

"The most useful thing was learning where to start, especially with unknown samples, and how to optimize from there."

"All the basics were explained really well and illustrated with practical examples. I feel that I am better able to make decisions when analysis or trying to adjust a current method."
