  • Effective Use of NIST Software with Commercial and User Software for Unknown Identification by GC-MS a series of free videos and other information.

    Commercial EI (electron ionization) libraries from NIST and Wiley are a powerful tools for the identification of organic compounds in complex mixtures by GC-MS.  A 5-part series of seminars demonstrates the use of the NIST software using both commercial and user-created libraries.  The NIST software includes MS Search, MS Interpreter, and AMDIS plus the user's choice of a commercial drawing program.  The information including YouTubes and complimentary detailed handouts should be useful for scientists involved in medical, environmental, industrial, forensic, and biological disciplines.

Help Us Help You (and Joe Loo!)

ASMS has created this page as a resource for instructors who need to teach mass spectrometry in remote lecture courses and lab classes. During the current situation, lab course instructors have no-doubt created interesting ways to teach mass spectrometry without the "hands-on" component. UCLA’s Joe Loo is struggling to instruct students the principles of how to operate a mass spectrometer without access to an instrument.

Please help Joe and the rest of the MS community by sending your ideas and remote-learning tools that you use to teach mass spectrometry to the ASMS Education Committee (info@asms.org).
