MS Training Courses


Are you working with mass spectrometry systems and would you like to develop your skills on the analysis technique, various hardware parts and their maintenance? Attend the MS training courses that Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions offers.

In the theoretical session we will explain the basics of the analytical technique. Next we will put the theory into practice by a hands-on learning-by-doing training. The mix of theoretical modules and hands-on training will extend the skills of the operators and scientists resulting in a maximum system uptime and productivity. All courses are taught by specialists having many years of experience in Gas Chromatography. Upon request we will schedule the training on-site using your laboratory equipment.
