´GC meets NTS´

Gas Chromatography meets Non-Target Screening


For the first time, seven partners in instrumental analysis and their users will offer this special international non- target screening (NTS) seminar.
The workshop involves the representation and NTS application of gas chromatographic couplings with mass spectrometry (using EI and, above all, gentle ionization such as CI, APCI, DBDI, etc.) and the evaluation strategies using NTS workflows (platform discussion always included).
You can participate online.
