Optimizing mass spectrometry workflows to improve productivity in the laboratory can be a huge challenge for lab managers. Complex matrices add another layer of complexity, as detecting and identifying analytes of interest is a challenge regardless of industry.

Join the  fifth installment of this comprehensive five-part webinar series, where we’ll investigate how mass spectrometry can be used to combat challenges in small molecular compound identification.

Determining the chemical structure for the majority of compounds "identified" in a typical untargeted analysis remains a stubborn challenge and a persistent logjam, holding up progress in many fields including metabolomics, metabolism studies, forensics, contaminant analysis, and E&L identification.

This webinar describes a fundamental new approach to untargeted small molecule analysis involving optimized mass spectrometers, powerful new data acquisition strategies, and an arsenal of new software tools to translate high-quality Orbitrap mass spectra into more, confidently-assigned small molecule structures.

Who should attend:
Scientists or lab directors conducting small molecule characterization research in metabolomics, metabolite identitification, extractables and leachables, degradents, food contact materials, forensics, and environmental safety.

Webinar attendees will learn:
