  • Fast interpretation of large sample sets with Sync/Tile

By immersing yourself in these advanced technologies and software solutions, you stand to revolutionize your workflow, elevate quality control measures, protect your supply chain, uphold brand reputation, ensure product safety, and shape consumer perception.

This dynamic webinar will conclude with a video tour of four of our global application centers, followed by a Q&A session.

Alan Griffiths, Director of Separation Science Global Sales, LECO USA

Initially joining LECO UK as an installation and service engineer 15 years ago before taking on the challenges of sales across the UK and Ireland territory, Alan has a vast experience and understanding of LECO’s separation science portfolio. In the webinar, Alan will both introduce the speakers and chair the Q&A.

Dr. Liz Humston-Fuller, Applications Chemist, LECO USA

Liz earned her PhD in Analytical Chemistry with Prof Robert Synovec in the group that developed the tile-based Fischer ratio algorithms that have been further developed in collaboration with LECO to underpin ChromaTOF Tile. Her presentation will introduce “Advanced processing software with ChromaTOF Tile & ChromaTOF Sync.”

Dr. Lena Dubois, Applications Chemist, LECO Europe

Lena has ten years’ experience in the field of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry and gained her PhD under the mentorship of Prof. Jef Focant at Liège University. Lena will be discussing “Workflows for the assessment of key aroma compounds” by utilising the latest in advanced GC and GC×GC -TOFMS and data processing technologies.

Dr. Geraint (Taff) Morgan, Department of Physical Sciences, The Open University

Taff is an analytical chemist with vast experience, applying his knowledge from the bottom of the ocean to the surface of a comet. His talk entitled “Comprehensive Evaluation of Scotch Whisky Aroma Profile Using SPME-GC×GC-TOFMS” will demonstrate the effective use of high-quality instrumentation and software to real world whisky samples.

Sebastiano Panto, Head of Separation Science Applications Europe, LECO Europe B.V.

After obtaining his PhD in "Food Chemistry and Safety" in 2014, Sebastiano Panto joined LECO in 2016 and holds currently the position of "Head of Separation Sciences Applications" at LECO's EATC in Berlin, Germany. Sebastiano's presentation will focus on Enhancing workflows for essential oils using hydrogen carrier gas and BT 1D GC-TOFMS.
