International Conference on Non-Target Screening


International Conference on Non-Target Screening

16th – 19th October 2023 in Erding, Germany and online

Now, for the second time, Non-Target Screening and its applications are in the focus of an


NTS users from all over the world and vendors from the field of instrumental analysis will present their latest results and applications in

keynote lectures, lecture sessions and poster sessions.

This conference will cover the following techniques:

  • GC-MS(/MS) in NTS,
  • LC-MS(/MS) in NTS,
  • SFC-MS(/MS) in NTS
  • CE-MS(/MS) in NTS,
  • Multidimensional Chromatography in NTS
  • Soft Ionization Techniques in NTS
  • Ion-Mobility Mass Spectrometry in NTS
  • Other Techniques in NTS like NMR, IR, etc.

This conference will extend the discussion in view on Non-Target Screening main topics like the following:

  • NTS in Products of Daily Use and Medical Care,
  • NTS in Forensics and Doping,
  • NTS in Environmental Analysis,
  • NTS in Food(omics),
  • NTS in Metabolomics,
  • NTS in Materials,
  • NTS in Commercial Solutions,
  • Computational Mass Spectrometry,
  • NTS with Quality Standards, Data Standardization, Harmonization and Reporting



Thanks for more than 63 research presentations, 10 commercial presentations and now 37 posters

which we will see and discuss in October.

In the link to the ‚final program‘ you find the agenda with talks and in the following you find some examples for interesting posters:

  • Categorisation of Mass Spectrometry Data on the Basis of Toxicity; Boot et al.
  • Spectral Quality Scoring; Brinks et al.
  • Predicting and Mapping Retention Times of Anion Exchange Chromatography Systems using a Stratified Random Forest Regression Approach; Frøkjær et al.
  • Prediction of Retention Indices of Liquid Chromatography Coupled to High-Resolution Mass Spectrometer Pixel by Pixel; Hu et al.
  • Isomers in Non-Target Screening: Identification and Quantification; Kruve et al.
  • Interactive Design and Application of MassQL Queries after Preprocessing for the Annotation of PFAS in LC-TIMS-PASEF; Müller et al.

Poster awards will be sponsored by our Media Partner the Springer Journal ‚Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry‘ (see also link below) and AFIN-TS.

If you plan to publish your presentation also as manuscript in our special issue ‚Analytical Strategies in Molecular Food, Environmental and Biomedical Screening‘ in the Journal ‚Molecules – Analytical Section‘, do not hesitate to contact us soon (also for a waiver or discount for the open-access publication).
