Event Overview:

Do you think GC is a “mature” technique? There is a general perception that gas chromatography (GC) and the various forms of detection that are used with this technique have developed to the point where it is now a “mature” technology, but GC practitioners know that there are many new challenges to face and that new solutions are required to overcome longstanding issues.

This virtual symposium, organized by the Chromatographic Society (ChromSoc) and LCGC, will focus on areas of GC where the sample complexity, the requirements for highly accurate measurements, the sensitivity requirements imposed by regulators, and the need to push scientific discovery force GC users to look with fresh eyes on this supposedly “mature” technique. The highly respected international speakers will bring a fresh perspective on almost every aspect of GC in the vapour phase and the virtual symposium will maintain the high reputation that this bi-annual meeting has established over many years.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Modern approaches to achieving ultratrace detection limits in GC and GC–MS are revealed
  • The use of GC and GCxGC with high-resolution MS for complex sample screening will be discussed
  • Learn about advanced techniques for sample preparation and enrichment for qualitative and quantitative analysis
