A Practical User's Guide

M MCMASTER & C MCMASTER, MCM Scientific, St Louis, USA

This guide is designed to provide practical information on using, maintaining and troubleshooting analytical instrument systems in research, clinical, environmental and forensic analysis laboratories. Using everyday terminology, it takes the researchers and graduate analytical students through all the stages of setting up a GC/MS system and performing an analysis . The guide provides a basic grounding in theory to illustrate operational variables and how to control them, while also focusing on more specialist areas such as environmental analysis and LG/MS.

A key resource for organic, analytical, clinical, environmental, and forensic chemists as well as organic and analytical chemistry students. Also of interest to industrial and government laboratories (analytical, clinical, environmental, forensic) and research laboratories in industry and academia.
