GCxGC Training Course : modern technologies and applications

This GCxGC Training Course is a great opportunity to get insight to latest advances in Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Chromatography and enrich your expertise in these specific analytical area learning from leading industry specialists and technology experts:

Prof. Luigi Mondello and Prof. Peter Q. Tranchida from  University of Messina, Italy

Dr. Thomas Gröger, Joint Mass Spectrometric Centre (JMSC), Helmholtz Zentrum München, Germany

Dr. Mark Merrick and Dr. David E. Alonso from LECO Corporation, USA

The 3 day program was built to deliver right balance of theory and practice with the instrumentation and the software.

Day 1 is fully dedicated to fundamentals of Comprehensive Chromatography, review of modern technologies, detectors and software. This day consists of theoretical lectures and presentations by recognized experts, developers and experienced users. The participants will learn the basics, but also the latest technology trends and new horizons offered by high resolution TOF MS detectors.

Day 2 is focused on application fields featuring Food Safety, Aroma / Flavour / Fragrances, Environmental, Metabolomics and Petrochemicals. The participants will go through details of sample preparation, GCxGC setup, MS method, data mining strategies, results reports and more. Each of 5 practical cases is based on real samples and presented by the author of the study. Review of each application case will take about an hour and concluded by a group discussion with question and answers.

Day 3 is the hand’s on part of our course that allows all attendees to get a deeper practical insight on hardware and software of modern GCxGC technologies, LECO’s in specific. You will work with our different detectors -FID or –TOFMS (high and low res) and learn a step-by-step process to get to your perfect method and result. To demonstrate the ability and performance of each type of detector for true comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography, an application showcase will be reviewed on a real sample acquired at GCxGC-FID, GCxGC-TOFMS and GCxGC-HRT. You will get in front of the systems in small groups and the whole day covers 4 stations which you will visit one after the other.

The training program was built to deliver right balance of theory and practice and we recommend to attend the 3 day course in its entirety. While, to satisfy those who have particular interest we offer flexible registration options.  See page "Registration ".
