Short Courses were held Nov. 2, 2015

Introductory and advanced light scattering courses covered introductions to techniques such as SEC-MALS, FFF-MALS, DLS, and CG-MALS, as well as offering refreshers on ASTRA or DYNAMICS software. The series of half-day courses were held at Wyatt Technology HQ, and were not only a great way to prepare for ILSC, but also a good excuse for traveling to Santa Barbara in November! View course schedule.


Focus Meeting was held Nov. 5, 2015

A one day meeting focusing on method development for light scattering applications in the formulation of biotherapeutics was held after ILSC and addressed practical issues encountered in light scattering applications to biologic and small-molecule therapeutic formulation. Guest speakers from industry as well as Wyatt scientists discussed how they meet these challenges. View Focus Meeting schedule.
