E21: Uniting Analytical Technologies – TGA-IR-GCMS, LC-ICP-MS

One-Day Course
Wednesday, November 17; 8:30am – 5:00pm

Dr. Bill Hahn, PerkinElmer, Shelton CT
Brady Frill, PerkinElmer, Shelton CT

COURSE DESCRIPTION
Learn how instruments can be connected to get much more data then if run separately.  Theory, sample introduction, instrument operation, data interpretation chapters will be presented starting with the basics and then into cutting edge applications.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Scientists who want to see how connecting instruments together can help with their workflow.

TOPICS
  1. TGA-GC/MS Theory, sample introduction, instrument operation, data interpretation for each of below:
    a. TGA (Thermogravimetric analysis)
    b. GC (Gas chromatography)
    c. MS (Mass spectrometry)
    d. TGA-MS (Thermogravimetric analysis-mass spectrometry)
    e. TGA-GC/MS (Thermogravimetric analysis-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry)
    f. TGA-IR-GC/MS (Thermogravimetric analysis-infrared-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry)
  2. LC-ICP-MS
    a. LC (Liquid chromatography)
    b. ICP-MS (Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry)
    c. LC-ICP-MS (Liquid chromatography-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry)

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Bill Hahn has had an extensive career beginning with Forensics/methods development, then consulting for several years before being Vice president of operations for a chain of environmental testing labs, including a CLP lab and over 200 chemists.  Founded and operated a calibration standard company for 18 years.  After selling his company, Bill started with PerkinElmer in 2012, where he is a Principle Field Application Scientist for GC, GC/MS and the portable GC/MS systems in North America. 

Brady Frill is currently a Field Applications Scientist with PerkinElmer based out of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Before joining PerkinElmer, he spent nearly a decade as an analytical chemist working primarily with ICP-OES and ICP-MS in contract and R&D laboratories. His experience includes trace and assay analysis of metallurgical samples and alloys, plastics, polymers, polymer additives, geological samples, specialty gases, food additives and enzymes, fuels, oils and emission catalysts. Brady has a B.S. in Chemistry from Moravian College.
