Upcoming E-Seminar Set for March 16: Environmental Methods- High Performance GC-TOFMS

St. Joseph, Mich– On Thursday, March 16, LECO Corporation will host a complimentary e-seminar for the mass spectrometry community at 12:00 pm EST. This e-seminar will be presented by LECO applications chemist Jonathan Byer, PhD, and is titled, “”Exceed the Requirements of Standard Environmental Methods: Perform Target and Non-Target Analysis in a Single Run Using a High-Performance GC-TOFMS” The e-seminar will evaluate the advantages of full scan data at near SIM detection limits for standard environmental methods and will demonstrate how high-performance GC-TOFMS can be used to exceed the specifications of these method requirements. Unique attributes such as spectral deconvolution, target and non-target analysis in a single sample injection, and better-than-nominal mass accuracy will be highlighted. In particular, limits of detection were determined for semi-volatile organic compounds by EPA Method 8270, in drinking water by EPA Method 525.5, and in food commodities for pesticide residue analysis. Pre-registration is required. Please click on the registration link here, and you will receive confirmation and a link to the e-Seminar via email. Meet the Presenter Jonathan D. Byer, PhD is an applications chemist in the Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis group of LECO Corporation. His primary area of expertise is in environmental mass spectrometry, and he currently provides application support on the Pegasus BT, HT/4D and HRT/4D mass spectrometry platforms. Jonathan joined LECO in 2013 after attending Queen's University where he received a doctorate in environmental analytical chemistry. He currently resides in St. Joseph, MI with his wife Jeanine and his son Jonah.
