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 second 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.
The final day combines learning how to go about troubleshooting HPLC and LC-MS instruments and what problems can occur, with real problem solving on the instruments and data analysis software.
This course will cover the theory, methods, maintenance and troubleshooting of the vacuum system, ionisation, mass analysers, ion detection and data analysis including acquisition rate and tuning.
