Mass spectrometry (MS) can help solve a wide variety of problems. This course requires some prior MS knowledge. The goal of this three-day course is to go beyond and reinforce your mass spectral interpretation skills developed in PACS course number 10, "Mass Spectral Interpretation" or its equivalent. Your MS success needs effective data interpretation and a good understanding of the state-of-the-art; these are the major subject areas for this "Advanced Mass Spectral Interpretation" course. This course is designed for providers and users of mass spectral data. This course will improve the productivity and quality of results from your MS lab and/or facilitate wise decisions for your firms use of MS services. This course is not highly theoretical, it is practical. A course outline is below. Plan to bring your calculator or laptop computer.
The course leader is Dr. Henry Nowicki; he has well over thirty years of MS experiences in many problem solving application areas: environmental sciences, clinical, toxicology, forensics, legal and illegal drugs, natural products, metabolism, food sciences, R&D, biotechnology, and others. Required text is "Interpretation Of Mass Spectra", fourth edition by Fred McLafferty and F. Turecek. This book must be brought to your PACS course and can be purchased from: University Science Books, 20 Edgehill Road, Mill Valley, CA 94941 or phone (415) 332-5390 and FAX (415) 332-5393.
