Advances in Gas Chromatography V Meeting Announced

Jul 29 2015

A joint meeting organised by The Chromatographic Society and the North West Region of the Analytical
Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Gas chromatography is still the technique of choice for analysing both volatile and semi volatile compounds, but as we move to more difficult matrices, more is being asked of the technique in terms of separation and limits of detection. The meeting sets out to give an overview of current GC technologies and methodologies as well as information on newer GC solutions.

The biennial joint meeting is organised by The Chromatographic Society and the North West Region of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry. It is being held on the 14th October 2015 at the Heath Business Park Runcorn, Cheshire, and is the fifth meeting of this series.

The meeting has been put together to showcase work from industry, academia and the instrument companies and the very full program has been designed to accommodate the needs of both experienced chromatographers as well as those new to the technology and its applications.

The expansive one day event has been structured to bring attendees up to speed with the ‘state of play’ in gas chromatography, its associated instrumentation and support products, in previous years it has been a ‘full house’ and booking early is recommended.

The meeting is being held at the Heath Business Park in Runcorn a site which is well connected to road, rail and air links. The main sponsors for the event are Agilent and Thermo Scientific. An instrument exhibition will be held in parallel to the scientific meeting.Exhibitors signed up for the event include: Anatune, Anthias Consulting/JSB, Crawford Scientific, Hichrom. Phenomenex, Markes International, Sigma Aldrich, Shimadzu, Thames Restek.
