The 2-day Hands-on Advanced Injection course combines the 2 advanced GC courses on the Programmable Temperature Vapourisers (PTVs) and Large Volume Injection (LVI).

The first day focuses on the added functionalities of PTVs over standard hot inlets as a truly multi-mode inlet. Part of the day will be spent looking at the theory and advantages of cold split and cold splitless injections and the uses for cold-trapping, high final inlet temperatures, large volume injections and additional techniques like thermal desorption and extraction. The remainder of the day will be spent in the lab creating, using and optimising cold injection methods to analyse thermally labile and high molecular weight samples and looking at other PTV techniques.

The second day 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, covering rapid (at once), speed-controlled and multiple large volume injection (LVI) techniques.

Is this course for me?

This course will enable you to learn about and practice some advanced and powerful GC techniques which could be very useful for your analysis. Delegates should have a good knowledge of GC or GC-MS or have attended the Practical Essentials of GC & GC-MS or the Hands-on GC & GC-MS courses.
