About the Topic

Course Objective:

Learn effective LC/MS techniques for analyzing complex samples and characterizing organic compounds


Who Should Attend:

Experienced LC/MS researchers and practitioners, or others involved in identifying or measuring organic compounds in real-world samples including drugs and metabolites within or for the pharmaceutical industry, and who work with HPLC and MS techniques.  Prior HPLC and/or LC/MS experience and understanding is assumed.


Key Topics You\’ll Learn About:

  • Principles and preferred practices for APCI LC/MS
  • Fundamentals and practices for optimal electrospray ionization
  • Principles of multiple charging in electrospray mass spectra of biomolecules
  • Strategies for characterizing small molecules contained in biological samples via electrospray LC/MS and LC/MS/MS.
  • Sample preparation optimized for LC/MS and LC/MS/MS analyses
  • Initial strategies for interpreting collision-induced dissociation (CID) mass spectra of small pharmaceutical molecules.

About the Speakers

Jack Henion is Professor Emeritus of Toxicology at Cornell University in the Analytical Toxicology..  He is also a co-founder, Chairman, and CSO of Advion BioSciences, Inc., located in Ithaca, New York.  Prof. Henion’s work in LC/MS relates to the analysis of real-world samples common to pharmaceutical, environmental, and biochemical problems.  The instructor has published extensively in the areas of conventional capillary GC/MS as well as LC/MS, SFC/MS, IC/MS, and CE/MS using atmospheric pressure ionization (API) technologies with quadrupole, ion trap, FTMS, and time-of-flight mass spectrometers.
