WESTBOROUGH, MA - Malvern Instruments is offering two workshops this spring to help participants learn the latest material characterization techniques.

“Light scattering and GPC/SEC technologies: theory and applications” will be offered at the following locations: Research Triangle Park, NC, May 13; Westborough, MA, May 14; Chicago, May 21; Houston, May 23; and San Francisco, June 4.

Characterization of biomolecules, nanoparticles and a broad range of emulsion materials is carried out using dynamic light scattering, molecular weight determinations and zeta potential measurements. This workshop will provide background from basic theory to instrumentation and measurement techniques so that users can understand the data they obtain and optimize their results. Whether you are a newly interested researcher or already have instrumentation, the workshop will cover a broad range of topics to help with characterization needs.

“Complete particle characterization for the modern lab” will be offered at the following locations: Westborough, MA, April 30; Santa Ana, CA, April 30; Princeton, NJ, May 2; Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 2; Research Triangle Park, NC, May 14; Columbus, OH, May 21; Houston, June 4; and Dallas, June 6.

The workshop teaches how laser diffraction particle sizing works and how it can be successfully applied to applications. It will also review alternative techniques, such as image analysis, that provide even more information about individual particles.
