Markes to showcase GCxGC-TOF MS technologies at INEF conference
Tuesday, 29 July 2014 at 4:29:PM
Markes’ expertise in comprehensive 2D gas chromatography (GCxGC) and instrumentation for time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF MS) will once again be the focus of attention, this time at the International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) conference in Cambridge, UK, from 4–8 August.
The theme of the conference is ‘Emerging Trends and New Technologies’, and a wide range of topics will be covered, including Analytical Biosciences, Environment, Sustainability & Energy Forensic Science, Industry & Technology, and Inorganic.
As well as a booth featuring Markes’ BenchTOF-Select model and Select-eV video, Markes’ TOF MS specialist, Dr Laura McGregor, will be involved in the following presentations, workshops and posters:
Enhanced screening of environmental pollutants in complex matrices by GCxGC-TOF MS with variable-energy electron ionisation.
Monday 4 August, 15:30–16:00
GCxGC workshop, Session 1
Fundamentals of GCxGC and overview on applications to environmental forensics.
Tuesday 5 August, 14:00–15:30.
Dr McGregor will cover the principles of GCxGC, including modulation, temperatures and column selection.
GCxGC workshop, Session 2
Tuesday 5 August, 16.00–17:30.
Dr McGregor will cover Markes’ Select-eV variable-energy ionisation.
- New advances in environmental air monitoring.
- Fast GC–TOF MS with Select-eV ionisation for high-throughput screening of environmental contaminants.
