Track 1: Fundamentals of Mass Spectrometry

Mass spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique used to identify the amount and type of chemicals present in a sample by measuring the mass to charge ratio and abundance of gas-phase ions.  Mass spectrometry works by ionizing chemical compounds to produce charged molecules or molecule fragments to measure their mass to charge ratios.

Track 2:  New Approaches & Recent Advancements  in Mass Spectrometry

One of the most exciting and powerful developments in the evolution of mass spectrometry technology is the commercialization of hybrid instruments. Hybrid machines are made by combining two different types of mass analyzers together in tandem; one can now choose almost any combination of quadrupole, TOF, ion trap, or FT ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) hybrid. The hybrid instruments promise the ability to combine the best features from the different components and allow tandem mass spectrometry experiments and unique scanning modes that are not possible on a single instrument.

Track 3: Tandem Mass Spectrometry

Tandem mass spectrometry, abbreviated MS/MS, is any general method involving at least two stages of mass analysis, either in conjunction with a dissociation processor in a chemical reaction that causes a change in the mass or charge of an ion. The process initiates by isolating a biomolecule of interest from a biological sample and then fragmenting it into multiple subunits in order to help elucidate its composition and sequence. To accomplish this, mass spectrometers are arranged in series. The first spectrometer is arranged to ionize a sample and filter ions of a specific mass to charge ratio. Filtered ions are then fragmented and passed to a second mass spectrometer where the fragments are analyzed.

Track 4: Applications in Mass Spectrometry

Mass spectrometry depicts an important technique with a myriad of various applications in biology, chemistry, and physics, along with clinical medicine and space exploration. Mass ionization spectrometry has become an increasingly important method in the clinical laboratory for the structural study and quantitative measurement of metabolites in a complex biological sample. It is an analytical method with high specificity and a growing presence in laboratory medicine. Several mass spectrometers are being used in a growing number of clinical laboratories and significant improvements in assay performance are rapidly taking place in areas such as toxicology, endocrinology, and biochemical markers. Mass spectrometry is also becoming increasingly used in geologic research for petroleum composition measurement and carbon dating. Thus, mass spectrometry is becoming very prominent in all sorts of clinical and other research endeavours. Thus a basic grip of the technology is necessary to understand all the possible productive interactions.

Track 5: Maintenance, Troubleshooting, Data Analysis and Experimentation

Mass spectrometry(MS) is a high-throughput exploratory technique that describes particles by their mass-to-charge proportion. The MS consist of sample preparation, molecular ionization, detection, and instrumentation analysis processes. MS is beneficial as it is generally fast, requires a small amount of sample, and provides high accuracy measurements. The performance of a mass spectrometer will be severely affected by the lack of a good vacuum in the ion transfer region of the mass analyzer.  With the deterioration of the vacuum, it will become insufficient to maintain biomedical instrumentation in the operating mode. In case if the foreline pump is not maintained, the oil may become so contaminated that the optimum pumping is no longer possible.  Initially, gas transport and metabolism ballasting may refine the oil. On decolorization of the oil, it should be changed according to the pump manufacturers maintenance manual.  With the utilization of rotary pumps, to pump away conflict resolution, the solvent may become dissolved in the oil causing an increase in backing line pressure.  

Track 6: Configurations and Separation Techniques

Mass spectrometry configurations and techniques are regarded to Mass Spectrometry configuration of source, analyzer, and detector becomes conventional in practice. Various mass spectrometers are being used in a number of clinical laboratories and as a result, significant improvements in assay performance are occurring rapidly in areas such as toxicology, endocrinology, and Biochemical genetics. Atoms of elements vary in masses and thus knowledge of the molecular mass can very often be translated into knowledge of the chemical species involved. Depending on the samples chemical and mechanical properties, different ionization techniques can be used. One of the main factors in choosing which ionization technique to be used is the biochemical process. For samples that are not thermolabile and relatively volatile, ionization such as Electron Impact and/or Chemical Ionization can be effectively used.
