2021-Sample Preparation Summer Course | 28 September- 1 October 2021, Bydgoszcz, Poland

EuChemS-DAC Sample Preparation Study Group and Network supports the 2021-Sample Preparation Summer Course- ‘Sample Preparation for MS Bioanalysis: Theory, Practice and Applications’.

The course will be held between 28 September- 1 October 2021, in Bydgoszcz, Polandwith a primary focus on sample preparation for biological matrices. The organizer of the 2021 course is Associate Professor Barbara Bojko.

This four-day course is a prime theoretical/hands-on training event on preparation of biological matrices including biofluids and tissues. It covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to sample preparation with particular focus on sample collection, stability and storage, homogenization, anticoagulant and matrix effects
  • Commonly used as well as novel bioanalytical methods including microextraction and microsampling
  • Conventional and alternative matrices: blood, plasma, urine, tissues, saliva, faeces, breath, cell cultures
  • Method development, challenges and advantages of the strategy
  • Calibration and protocol validation
  • Drug analysis, targeted and untargeted metabolomics
  • In vivo study, temporal and spatial resolution
  • A complete method development strategy will be illustrated by real-life examples

The organizer will give two scholarships to PhD students from EuChemS-DAC Sample Preparation Study Group and Network.
