Join us for this complimentary webinar on Choosing your GC Column Part 3: Troubleshooting. Attendees will learn how to isolate system components, from the autosampler on the purge and trap to the mass spectrometer, in order to resolve common problems that might occur during volatiles analysis.

The webinar will address the following:

  • An overview of Part 1 and 2 of this series and how they relate to troubleshooting
  • Troubleshooting from Purge and Trap all the way to the GC column and Mass Spec
  • Troubleshooting topics include determining why compounds have low or no response, why you are seeing ghost peaks and what causes them, contamination, and compound specific problems

This webinar is ideal for anyone working with soil, wastewater, and/or drinking water purge and trap methods, scientists that wish to learn more about purge and trap analysis or about GC column separation, method translation, choosing the correct column for volatiles analysis, and method development. This is also idea for Environmental scientists/technicians, Analytical chemists/technicians, and Laboratory managers.

Chris English, Laboratory Manager for Restek Corporation and Amy Nutter, VOC Technical Product Specialist for Teledyne Tekmar have teamed up to give this webinar.
