Cost: $199

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The course will cover the basics of Gas Chromatography using Infrared Spectroscopy (GC/IR) for detection. The basic configurations of GC/IR will be discussed including the light pipe interface, cryogenic trapping, and matrix isolation. Several applications will be covered including food/flavor analysis, forensics, homeland security and application the the cannabis industry. The use of GC/IR data as complementary to GC/MS data will be discussed.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Scientists working to characterize complex mixtures. Scientists working in the Food/Flavor, Environmental. Forensics, and Cannabis Industries.

Learn the basics of Gas Chromatography and Infrared Spectroscopy. Learn the utility of GC/IR and how it is complementary to GC/MS. Explore applications, especially to the Cannabis Industry.

TRACK: Cannabis/Psychedelics

CATEGORIES: Environmental Analysis, Food, Forensics, Gas Chromatography, Infrared Spectroscopy
