Volatile organic compound (VOC) profiling of fermented food products by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry

August 23, 2021 @ 1:30 PM - August 24, 2021 @ 4:30 PM

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is a highly sensitive, reproducible and high-throughput analytical platform for identification, and quantification of volatile organic compounds. This 2 days training workshop will familiarize you with sample preparation techniques, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, GC columns, injection modes, experiment troubleshooting, application and importance of GC-MS. You will have practical experience of GC-MS hardware modules along with headspace, method development, sample preparation for fermented food products for GC-MS analysis and finally identification of compounds.

Duration: 2 days

Date & Time: 23rd-24th August, 2021 (1.30 PM-4.30 PM)
