What will you learn on this course?
This one day course combines the theory and advantages behind the different large volume injection techniques with "hands-on" practicals to create, use and optimise LVI methods in the laboratory.
This course will cover rapid (at once), speed-controlled and multiple large volume injection (LVI) techniques - enabling productivity-boosting method miniaturisations.
Who is this course for?
This course requires good knowledge of GC or GC-MS.
Note: This course will cover using PTV inlets for large volume injections only, please refer to the PTV course for other PTV techniques.
- You will learn about the various large volume injection techniques and the pros and cons of each type
- You will learn how to select the best technique for your analytes, sample volume and inlet type
- You will learn about and gain practical experience of the individual parameters required to be optimised for each technique
- You will develop an LVI method
- You will have examples of applications using the techniques and put some of these into practice in the laboratory
- Combine with the 1-day Hands-on Multi-Mode Inlets (MMIs) and Programmable Temperature Vapourisers (PTVs) course to form the 2-day Hands-on Advanced Injection for GC & GC-MS course for £925 + VAT.
Feedback from previous attendees
"Good use of lecture time translating into laboratory exercises to illustrate the point fully." International analytical sales support from an instrument manufacturer who attended the Advanced Injection Technique course (February 2013).
"Very good content and course material, and allowed time for questions and comments, and good mix between class and hands on." Senior analyst from an instrument manufacturer who attended the Advanced Injection Technique course (February 2013).
