The 16th Nordic mass spectrometry conference will be held in Copenhagen in 2016. The conference takes place from September 27th to September 29th at “Lokomotivværkstedet” and will be part of the Scandinavian exhibition for laboratories “LABmed 2016”.
The scope of the conference is to provide a forum to encourage the exchange of ideas about recent research and state-of-the-art knowledge in the main areas of mass spectrometry including fundamentals, quantification, organic and biological analysis, instrumentation and applications. International invited speakers will give plenary lectures to present recent progress in these fields of mass spectrometry. All participants are invited to submit an abstract of work to be presented at the conference. Your abstract should emphasize the originality of the work.
An important objective for our 16th Nordic Conference in Mass Spectrometry is to strengthen the MS relations in our Nordic countries such that both social connections and professional ones are made. The conference serves as a meeting place for everyone involved in the field of Mass Spectrometry.
This week long course using state-of-the-art instrumentation in a world-class facility is run by renowned specialists located in the Section of Computational and Systems Medicine at Imperial College London.
Small groups of trainees can enjoy a friendly, intimate learning experience and interact with highly experienced training centre instructors and guest lecturers.
The course covers how to perform a metabolic profiling experiment, including:
Study design, sample preparation, the use of mass spectrometry for global profiling and targeted methodologies and data analysis.
Instrument set up, method development and acquisition through global profiling and targeted analyses of biofluids, using the newest QToF and TQ instrumentation.
Data analysis workshops allowing attendees to process data acquired, in order to develop interpretation skills.
Application lectures, problem solving, tips, tricks and troubleshooting.
This combination of lectures, demonstrations, hands-on laboratory sessions and practical data analysis will equip attendees with skills to implement immediately in their own facilities. Online booking is now open. Additional information including course overview and full programme is available here.
The EFASIGatWWEM2016 meeting will be held during the WWEM2016 conference & exhibition at The International Centre, Telford, Shropshire, on November 2 2016. Pre-registration for the meeting, free of charge, should be made by accessing the WWEM website. The scientific programme for the meeting will uploaded to the EFASIG page on the BMSS website when finalised.
The organizers are extremely pleased to announce that Professor Luigi Mondelo, University of Messina, Messina, Italy has agreed to deliver the keynote presentation entitled GCxGC/MS and LCxLC/MS for the Analysis of Environmental and Food Matrices.
A brief description of the focus and main theme of the meeting is given below.
Applications of chromatography mass spectrometry with a focus on aspects of comprehensive techniques to solve environmental problems.
Developments in comprehensive chromatographic and ion mobility techniques coupled with mass spectrometry have been wide ranging in the past several decades. There have been many applications in environmental fields none more so than in the monitoring of a wide range of analytes of environmental significance in water and waste matrices. The added capability of multidimensional techniques has enhanced the power to resolve and identify target analytes more uniquely.
There will be a focus on two dimensional techniques in addition to general conventional methods.
Metabolic Phenotyping in Disease Diagnosis and Personalised Health Care
15th -18th November 2016
Imperial International Phenome Training Centre, Imperial College London
This is a lecture-based course detailing an overview of metabolic phenotyping including the use of NMR spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry, with insights from the experts at Imperial College and collaborators from all over the world. Lectures will cover data acquisition and analysis with some advanced statistical workshops for more hands-on participation for attendees. There will also be examples of real life applications from the research at Imperial College and their collaborators. Topics covered include:
Analytical technology (NMR / MS) for metabolic profiling
Alternative analytical technique (NMR / MS) and introduction to statistical analysis theory
Advanced chemometrics (OPLS and O2PLS)
Metabolite identification in both NMR and MS
Online booking is now open. Additional information including course overview and full programme is available here.
This 3.5-day course aims to provide an overview of data analysis for metabolic phenotyping studies, using data acquired from both liquid chromatography - mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy.
It combines lectures and tutorial sessions to ensure a thorough understanding of the theory and practical applications. Topics covered include:
Pre-processing of data acquired via LC-MS and NMR.
Basic chemometrics and unsupervised analysis including PCA.
Supervised analysis and advanced chemometrics - OPLS and O2PLS
Pathway analysis and statistical spectroscopy.
The course does not assume any experience of coding or statistical analysis. To register, please complete the online booking form.
Additional information including course overview and full programme is available here.
This meeting, organsied by The Chromatographic Society and the Separation Science Group, Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry, provides an insight into the latest methodologies and technological developments for clinical applications, in particular the application of phenotyping and biomarkers and the wide utilisation of mass spectrometry in clinical analysis. Clinical analysis is a wide-ranging subject area and as we move to more complex and difficulat clinical analysis the methodologies are being challenged in terms of their specificity, sensitivity and also the suitability for high throughput and lower cost analysis.
The meeting will focus on separation and complementary/alternative techniques along with case studies from the hospital and academic areas. The program has been designed to give attendees and update for both routine and problem solving in clinical analysis. The meeting will focus on the perspectives within the wider area of clinical analysis.
