The Troubleshooting Forum has been created to provide a setting for discussion between LC-MSMS users working in clinical diagnostics. If you've had an LC-MSMS problem that has either been resolved with troubleshooting techniques, or is still in the process of resolution - this is an opportunity to share your experience with other clinical laboratory users. The more resolution needed the better. Simple or complex, method development, method validation or production - all types of troubleshooting cases are needed. If you learned something from it, the chances are someone else can learn something as well. The intent is to stimulate discussion and to propagate expertise and solutions on those aspects of the mass spectrometry experience that rarely see daylight ... when everything goes horribly wrong. This is not about being perfect, or even close. Come to learn, or come to share. Or both. One or more Troubleshooting Poster Rounds will be scheduled in which a team of experienced users (and interested attendees) will visit posters to listen to a brief summary by the presenter, and then discuss the case and provide suggestions. If you want your poster to be included in Troubleshooting Poster Rounds, select the Troubleshooting Poster Rounds topic when you submit your abstract.
(1) Content must be vendor neutral.
(2) There must be a strong point/experience to get across that is also vendor neutral (i.e. would benefit everyone regardless of the platform they use).
(3) No generic troubleshooting (i.e., autosampler problems, pump problems, most commonly encountered problems from the hotline, etc.).
TROUBLESHOOTING BONUS: Troubleshooting Abstracts do not count towards your abstract count. You can submit your own research AND a Troubleshooting abstract.
The Review Process:
