Event Overview:

Analytical laboratories involved in water testing analysis are facing growing demand for monitoring organic contaminants in wastewater, surface, and deep water intended for human consumption. Sample preparation required ahead GC-MS analysis is crucial and represents the most critical bottleneck for higher sample throughput. Manual sample preparation protocols are not only labor-intensive and time consuming, but also quite expensive, prone to human errors, and may expose the operators to hazardous chemicals. Many laboratories started to adopt automated procedures on-line with high-performance analytical instrumentation to simplify daily workflow while ensuring appropriate sensitivity levels. This webinar brings you examples on how water testing laboratories could achieve significant savings after moving from a manual to automated workflow by:

  • Improving sample throughput with unattended, 24/7 operation
  • Enhancing laboratory efficiency with improved data quality
  • Reducing costs with scaled-down solvent and sample volumes

Key Learning Objectives

  • Insight of key automated workflows for trace levels detection of semi-volatile contaminants in water
  • Insight of advanced GC/GC-MS technology for highly sensitive and robust solutions
  • Insight of time and cost savings capability by adopting sample prep automation

Who Should Attend

  • Analyst and lab managers from water testing laboratories
  • Water service providers
  • Lab managers and lab directors who want to know more on automation capabilities for on-line GC-MS analysis.
