Note: Does not include registration to the GCC.
For GCC registration information please visit the web site www.gulfcoastconference.com A short course presented in conjunction with the 93rd annual Gulf Coast Conference, Galveston, TX.

September 10, 2001, a day before the formal opening of the GCC, thus it will not interfere with your attendance at the GCC.

Who should attend this course?
 Technical individuals using GC in day-to-day sample/product analysis.
 Research and Process chemists, R&D managers who routinely seek gas chromatographic methods for their research and product development.
 Anyone interested in obtaining practical information on the detector technology and its applications in solving analytical problems.

What will you learn?
This one-day course does not assume any prior background on the subject. It will cover fundamental operating principles with emphasis on practical applications rather than theoretical aspects. Attendees will walk away with a full understanding of the utility of the detector in solving various analytical problems.
