The course will cover the what, why, where, when and how of MSI.
- What is mass spectrometry imaging?
- Why do we use mass spectrometry imaging? How could it help solve problems and what answers could it give?
- When do we use mass spectrometry imaging? What types of analytes and samples can you use MSI for?
- How does mass spectrometry imaging work? and what instrumentation is available?
- Where do we use mass spectrometry imaging? Which applications to answer what questions?
- You will learn about the different types of MSI (DESI, MALDI & SIMS)
- You will understand the definition of MSI
- You will learn the principles & limitations of the technique
- You will learn about the principles and components of the mass spectrometer
- You will learn the purpose and principles of data analysis
- You will learn about different sampling techniques for MSI
- You will learn about a number of industries and their application of MSI
Who is this course for?
- Beginners - those new to Mass Spectrometry Imaging.
- Analysts or Technicians looking for a refresher in these techniques.
- Lab Managers and Line Managers - those who are responsible for the instruments or the analysts using them.
- Data Analysts and Report Writers - technical specialists who aren't using the instruments but are using data from them.
- Service Engineers and Consultant Engineers - those who look after or recommend the use of these instruments but don't have the chemistry background or chemistry viewpoint.
- Those involved in the Sales or Marketing of these instruments, their consumables or their use for analysis - e.g. manufacturers, contract labs, media companies.
This course is ideal either as stand-alone or prior to attending further bespoke MSI application development training.
