In this session we will consider the technology for interfacing GC with MS detectors and the column flow rates which are appropriate for use with various mass analyser types.
We will fully consider the instrumentation and theory of Electron Ionization and Chemical Ionization alongside some illustrative application examples. We will discuss Instrument Autotune and how to interpret these to ensure that the instrument is working properly. We will expand the discussion to include a full treatment of how one might tune the instrument for optimum qualitative or quantitative data for your specific analytes.
We will conclude this session with a discussion of Troubleshooting problems with Ionization and Instrument Tuning and Calibration.
