This course introduces the fundamental theory of single quadrupole mass spectrometry along with the operation of the Agilent single quadrupole Mass Spectrometer using MassHunter software.

This course includes an introduction to single quadrupole mass spectrometry; the principles of method development and troubleshooting, the vacuum system, ionisation, the quadrupole mass filter and the detector. The course covers the function and operation of the individual components of the Agilent SQMS instrumentation as well as the important MS parameters. Attendees will gain practical experience of performing maintenance of each MS component and troubleshooting an instrument.

The course introduces the Agilent MassHunter software for instrument control, data acquisition and analysis. Delegates will learn how to install, set-up and operate the software, covering types of tuning methods, how to create full scan and SIM methods and gain an understanding of each method type, how to analyse individual and multiple samples and how to undertake data analysis. There will be an introduction to macros and retention time locking and delegates will also learn about method maintenance.

The course combines a mixture of classroom-based presentations with hands-on hardware and software lab exercises, to give you comprehensive training.

This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
