LabIndia Sponsored National Seminar & Workshop on Mass Spectrometry at CDRI
National Seminar cum Workshop on Hyphenated Mass Spectroscopy Techniques Enabled developments in Chemical & Biological Sciences
Theme of the Seminar
Sophisticated Analytical Instrument facility (Formerly known as Regional Sophisticated Instrumentation CentreRSIC) at Central Drug Research Institute,(CSIR), Lucknow has been providing excellent analytical service for the last 30 years and is one of the first four such facilities set up by the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India in mid seventies. The concept of the SAIF at Central Drug Research Institute evolved around the regional needs of scientists and research personnel engaged in research in the chemical and biological sciences. The sophisticated instruments at the centre have been updated from time to time, keeping pace with the advancement of science and technology and the requirements oft he users.
Objective of Seminar Mass spectrometry (MS) is among the most important analytical tools as well as a fast developing research area in chemical, biological, and forensic sciences. The versatility of MS techniques in addressing divergent issues has attracted the researchers' attention inthe recent past. However, in spite of the rapid advances in MS, this has remained elusive and out of reach to majority of the scientific community due to the prohibitive cost of the equipment as well as its up-keeping. There is a need to increase awareness among the prospective users of this technique. The invited lecturers are all international experts and will expound the current state of mass spectrometry with the highlights of hot topics and potential future course of advances in massspectrometry.
