Will you be attending the 2014 Pittsburgh Conference, March 2-6 in Chicago, IL? If so, you might be interested to learn that Wyatt staff will be conducting three ½-day Short Courses:
- Nanoparticle Characterization – Fractionation, Size, Zeta Potential and Composition, instructor: Jeffrey Ahlgren, Ph.D., Tuesday March 4
- Light Scattering Techniques for Absolute Macromolecular Characterization, instructor: Sigrid Kuebler, Ph.D., Wednesday March 5
These are all taught as introductory courses, and no previous light scattering experience is required. The courses are suited for scientists in the pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, nanotechnology and medical device industry, as well as researchers working in academic or government labs who wish to learn how light scattering can help them characterize their proteins, synthetic or natural polymers, and nanoparticles.
The 2nd course is similar to a "mini" Light Scattering University® and is a great light scattering refresher. Refresh and improve your light scattering skills, or dig into unfamiliar applications of multi-angle, dynamic and electrophoretic light scattering! Click on the links for more information and to register for the respective short course.
And, don’t forget to stop by our exhibitor booth #3554 as well, pick up the latest literature, and say hello to the Wyatt Team!
If you are planning on attending PEGS 2014, May 5-9 in Boston, MA, you may be interested in attending a short course co-instructed by Wyatt staff:
Protein Aggregation: Mechanism, Characterization and Immunogenic Consequences, instructors: Elizabeth Topp, Head of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy at Purdue University; Daniel Some, Principal Scientist at Wyatt Technology, and Michael Marlow, Staff Scientist at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals; on Thursday, May 8th.
In addition to the short course, Dan Some will also be presenting "Molar Mass, Size, Conjugation and interactions: Light Scattering Tools for Biophysical Characterization" in the Analytical Stream's Biophysical Analysis of Biotherapeutics session, Wednesday, May 7th at 12:40 PM.

and we will organize a 'Wyatt guest' group discount. Please stop by our exhibitor booth as well, pick up the latest literature, and say hello to the Wyatt Team!
The International Union of Crystallography doesn't meet very often, so make the most of it! Wyatt Technology will hold a free workshop on "The Light Scattering Toolbox for Biomolecular Crystallographers", on August 6, 2014. Taught by Dr. John Champagne, Senior Application Scientist and Wyatt's Northeast Regional Manager, the course will cover three key light scattering techniques of interest to anyone doing crystallography on biomolecules.
