 Course Description

This 3-day sample preparation course will be a mix of theory and practical hands-on sessions. Participants will learn about different sample preparation techniques typical for environmental, food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical samples. They will also gain practical skills on various analytical sample preparation techniques specific for chromatography and mass spectrometry analyses.

There will be 4 main practical components for this course:

  1. Sample dissolution and filtration
    Types of samples vs. choice of solvents and filtration tools
  2. Sample extraction and purification
    Types of samples vs. choice of techniques (SPE, SPME, QuEChERS, liquid-liquid)
  3. Sample derivatization
    Type of detectors, derivatization reagents and sample procedure
  4. Sample concentration and desalting
    Types of samples vs. technologies and devices

Participants will learn about the details including the benefits, tips and tricks and also, how to improve sensitivity. Participants will also learn basic optimization and common trouble shooting skills for these techniques.
