Malvern Instruments And Purdue University Present Joint Symposium On Light Scattering Techniques For Nanoparticle Characterization
Malvern Instruments and the Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University will jointly host a one day symposium on 21st September 2011 examining the application of light scattering techniques in the characterization of nanoparticles.
The symposium will take place on the Purdue Campus at West Lafayette, Indiana and is designed for scientists who manufacture, process or formulate nanoparticles, and those working with liposome and biomolecule applications in the area of drug delivery.
During the day expert speakers from Purdue and Malvern Instruments will discuss the application of chromatography, dynamic light scattering, static light scattering and electrophoretic light scattering in the characterization of nanoparticles. Typical application examples include: micelle formation and surface interaction; biomolecular structure and stability; suspension stability; and molecular weight determination.
The key focus for the symposium will be to demonstrate how different analytical techniques provide the information needed to advance nanotechnology.
