What will you learn on this course?
This course provides an overview of the history, development and current use of chemometrics in fields such as clinical, environmental, flavour and fragrance and biotechnology applications and it's use in method development.
The course opens with a "walk-though" summary of the workflows in a chemometrics study, as an example, and goes on to outline the considerations when designing a chemometrics experiment or study including sampling and quality control, metadata and sample preparation techniques.
The course will provide an overview of different Mass Spectrometry-based instrumentation and other techniques (such as NMR and Infrared) that produce data used for chemometric analysis.
The course covers data processing and statistical analysis including worked examples using data analysis software. This section will cover processing and preparation of mass spectrometry data and will give an overview of Multivariate Statistical Analysis techniques for Biomarker Discovery, Environmental Analysis, Flavour and Fragrance Analysis and in Method Development. It will go through the different chemometric techniques, methods and tools used for creating and mapping data and includes an overview of the various commercial and freeware software tools available.
The final part of the course goes on to explore the frontiers of chemometrics and advancements in the field.
This 1-day course is ideal either as stand-alone or prior to attending the 4-day Data Analysis for Chemometrics (Agilent MassHunter with GeneSpring Mass Profiler Professional) course.
Who is this course for?
If you have no or very little knowledge of chemometrics and would like to improve your knowledge in this area, then this is the course for you.
Course presenter: this course will be taught by Chemometric specialist Dr Simon Thain.
