What will you learn on this course?
The 4-day Comprehensive GC Training course introduces the fundamental theory of GC along with the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of the Agilent Gas Chromatograph using GC OpenLab EZChrom software.
This course includes an introduction to gas chromatography, EZChrom configuration, an introduction to EZChrom, data acquisition and data analysis. It will discuss gas supply and handling; split/splitless and multi-mode inlets; capillary columns; detectors (FID and ECD); the autosampler; PC & data system; creating methods; integration and reporting; quantitation and calibrations; sequences; and retention time locking. This course also covers troubleshooting and maintenance of the autosampler, inlet, column, detector and data systems.
It combines a mixture of classroom based presentations with hands-on hardware and software lab exercises, to give you comprehensive training.
You can attend all 4 days of the course for a complete training solution. Alternatively you can attend the 2-day Comprehensive GC Hardware (Agilent GC) course or 2-day Comprehensive GC Software Training (OpenLAB EZChrom) course for specific training on hardware or software.
