Applications Laboratory, GC-MS, Sean O'Connor, Training,


It’s just over a year now, since I started working at Anatune as an Applications Chemist and Training Co-ordinator; what a busy year it has been!

Our team of Application Chemists and Engineers have been providing training to many people this year alongside the installation of new instruments. However, we also know of many customers with existing systems that, due to staff moving or organisational changes in the organisation are not being used to their full potential or, even worse, have become embarrassing white elephants in the lab.

At Anatune, we want you to get the best out of the GC-MS instrumentation you have bought from us. So we are geared-up to provide you and your team with additional training to improve their levels of skill and knowledge and to enable them to produce the best data possible.

Over the last year, we have delivered top-up training on topics as a wide diverse as:

  • Large volume injection
  • Dynamic headspace sampling
  • Automated liquid-liquid extraction
  • Agilent MassHunter software
  • Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS)
  • GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler power-user training

In 2016, we will extend our training provision still further. In addition to on-site training for new customers we will run training courses here at Anatune’s facility in Cambridge, that will be open for new or existing customers who want to gain that vital knowledge for their team and turn white elephants back into a useful pieces of laboratory instrumentation, ensuring that you get the most out of your investment.

So, as Anatune’s Training Co-ordinator I would like hear more about your training requirements.

  • What is the best training format for your laboratory?
  • What topics do your staff need help with?

If you want a chat about training, I am happy to oblige. Please call me on +44 (0) 1223 279210 or email me, Sean O’Connor via enquiries@anatune.co.uk.
