What will you learn on this course?

Spend the first day learning the theory of mass-spectrometry and then use this knowledge to create LC-MS methods, perform injections and change MS parameters to see the effects.

The final day combines learning the reasons why maintenance is required, what happens if maintenance isn’t performed and the signs of when maintenance is needed along with practicals carrying out maintenance on mass spectrometers.

This course will cover the theory, methods and maintenance of the vacuum system, ionisation, mass analysers, ion detection and data analysis including acquisition rate and tuning.

Learning outcomes

  • You will learn the principles of mass spectrometry
  • You will learn about the function & operation of the MS individual components
  • You will become familiar with the MS instrumentation
  • You will learn the importance of routine maintenance
  • You will learn the signs of when maintenance is required
  • You will have practical experience of adjusting the parameters for each MS component
  • You will have practical experience of performing maintenance on each MS component
