There are many programs on the TV were you see modern analytical instruments. The analyst just places a sample in or on the instrument and it appears to provide incredible results instantly including what the substance is and its full history. Is this fact or fiction?

During this lecture Professor Peter Myers will describe several key analytical techniques used in the labs at the University of Liverpool. He will explore how the techniques work, the real results that they provide and more importantly, how they relate to you and your life.
Professor Myers will take a closer look at how during this pandemic, instrumentation is being used and developed further to analyse tests, to lead to a greater understanding of COVID-19.
