We are very pleased that -as a start-up company in the fourth year- we were able to continue in 2021 extensive research on non-target screening, to publish, to educate and to organize conferences.
The funding of a strategical partnership by the Westfälische Wasser- und Umweltanalytik GmbH led to a sustainful establishment of NTS in the water analysis using polarity-extended chromatography and a qualification of this concept for routine.
In 2021 we could publish three peer-reviewed research articles (regarding NTS in water analysis and in plant metabolomics), two review articles (regarding NTS with GC-MS and SFC-MS), two articles in our AFIN-TS Forum and book chapters about ‘Using HILIC’.
In 2021 several (german) certification courses as well as seminars were digitally realized with our cooperation partners Springer Campus (Sekulab and other institutions). The lectures and seminars with the topics LC-MS, Mass Spectrometry, DoE and Polar Molecules were given in a 3 x 3h format in Spring (Wednesday) as well as in Autumn (Mondays) with numerous participants. This succesful format (not only for pandemic times) will be continued for seminars in 2022. If you would like to particpate in an English-spoken seminar don’t hesitate to contact us.
At 4. / 5. Februar we organized for the first time the workshop ‘Gas Chromatography meets Non-Target Screening‘. More than 50 international GC users and vendor representatives met digitally for lectures and panel discussions.
