“Practical Mass Spectrometry in Residue Chemistry: Basic Principles and Applications”

Mike Filigenzi, California Animal Health and Food Safety Lab at UC Davis

This introductory level one day short course will be focused on the use of mass spectrometry for residue chemistry applications. Topics will include common ionization sources such as electrospray, APCI, EI, and CI, mass analyzers such as quadrupole, time of flight, and ion trap mass analyzer (e.g. Orbitrap), and concepts such as resolution, mass accuracy, tuning, mass calibration, matrix suppression, and the use of MS libraries. This course will be aimed towards analysts who are new in the field with the goal being for the students to return to their labs with the kind of knowledge that will immediately allow them to be more productive in their day-to-day work. 

None, although preference will be given to those currently using mass spectrometry as part of their routine work.

Instructor Bio:
Mike has over 35 years of experience in the analysis of small molecules using chromatography and mass spectrometry. Mike spent twenty years working in environmental labs, performing analyses and developing methods under EPA and GLP regulatory environments. He has spent the last seventeen years working as a Group Leader at the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory at the University of California at Davis. Mike’s primary responsibility during this time has been the development and validation of methods for small molecule toxins and drugs in a wide variety of matrices. Mike has extensive experience with many different types of chromatographs and mass spectrometers, including GC, HPLC, and UHPLC interfaced with quadrupole, triple quadrupole, magnetic sector, ion trap, Orbitrap, and hybrid mass spectrometers. Mike has authored or co-authored over twenty articles for peer-reviewed publications and authored a chapter on analytical toxicology for the third edition of Veterinary Toxicology, Basic and Clinical Principles. Mike co-taught the two day short course on quantitative LC-MS for NACRW 2016 and for the last three years, he’s served as a co-instructor for the highly rated FDA course “LB 511, FDA/FERN Training for LC-MS”.
