We had a number of suggestions from people involved in metabolomics to run workshops on the topic of automated sample preparation and high resolution accurate mass GC-MS.

In response to this we have decided, in co-operation with our friends at Agilent and GERSTEL, to organise a series of 2-day workshops that combine both topics.

There are strong reasons for us doing this now.

A series of new accessories have become available for the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS) recently that greatly enhance what the MPS can offer in the way of automated sample preparation. The time is ripe to re-focus on what automated sample prep can offer to improve things.

In parallel, the Agilent 7200 GC/Q-TOF is a unique and revolutionary new high resolution, accurate mass GC-MS that has proved to be capable, robust and easy to use. It is clearly a significant product for labs involved in metabolomics studies.

Even better, both products are highly synergistic and integrate fully into a single complete system, controlled through a single software interface.

We have scheduled these workshops for 4th/5th November, and 6th/7th November 2014.

The workshops will be hosted at our lab in Cambridge and since there is a practical element involved, the number of attendees that we can accommodate on each workshop is limited. In contrast, initial indications are that there will be a strong demand for places, so if you think you may wish to attend, please let us know right away.

The cost is £60 + VAT per person, which is inclusive of lunch on both days, all refreshments and course material.  This price does not include hotel accommodation, but we can help with recomendation, should you need it.
