LECO to Host Webinar on GC-TOFMS Flavor Analysis
On Thursday, September 19 at 10 am EST (1600 hours CET), LECO Corporation will hold a complimentary e-seminar titled The Importance of Using GC-TOFMS (Gas Chromatography—Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry) for Flavor and Off-Flavor Analysis for Packaging-Related Issues.
Presented by Ray Marsili of Marsili Consulting Group, this live, 45-minute e-seminar will discuss how GC-TOFMS can be used to resolve “hidden” chromatographic peaks in food samples, resulting in higher-quality spectra and more accurate peak determinations. The presentation will include examples of coelution problems that can occur when analyzing complex samples such as extracts from packaging materials. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, and the event will be archived for future reference.
This free e-seminar is part of an ongoing series offered by LECO on various topics of interest to lab managers and technicians. Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, visit www.leco.com and click “e-Seminars” under the “Support” tab.
