Pittcon 2019 Short Course

Saturday 16th March 2019 - 8:30am - 5:00pm

This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

What will you learn on this course?

First, parts of the system requiring maintenance, how often and how to identify when maintenance is required are covered in detail.

Then we look at preparing for problems, how to identify problems and the troubleshooting process. This knowledge is then put to the test in troubleshooting chromatograms through the final part of the day.

Who is this course for?

Those who have good knowledge of GC or GC-MS and would like to know how to efficiently and effectively maintain and troubleshoot their instrument.

Learning outcomes

  • You will learn about each part of the instrument requiring maintenance and why
