Training Courses for IRMS Operators

Lola Oliver of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks took a 4 day training course at Iso-Analytical. On returning to Alaska she said:

"I spent a year after we first purchased our mass spectrometer learning to use it on my own, and still was not comfortable with the machine. The Iso-Analytical training course gave me practical guidance for routine, high volume analysis on my Europa mass spectrometer. The course was intense and all the information of practical use. I keep the course training manual next to the machine and refer to it almost daily. My confidence in my ability to do quality analysis is greatly increased."
