2015 Short Courses

Introductory & advanced ½ day courses: MALS, DLS and more

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!

Course Title and Description

Introduction to Light Scattering - Basics of multi-angle and dynamic light scattering: theory, instrumentation, and primary applications.


ASTRA 6 - Refresher on ASTRA plus latest features and improvements and advanced training opportunities in SEC-MALS.


DYNAMICS 7 - Refresher on DYNAMICS plus latest features and improvements and advanced training opportunities in DLS.


FFF-MALS - Theory and use of Field-Flow Fractionation + Light Scattering (FFF-MALS) for separation and characterization of macromolecules and nanoparticles using the Wyatt Eclipse. Students should be familiar with Wyatt MALS instruments and ASTRA.


CG-MALS - Theory and use of Composition-Gradient Light Scattering (CG-MALS) for characterization of biomolecular interactions using the Wyatt Calypso. Students should be familiar with Wyatt MALS instruments.


MP-PALS - Theory and use of Phase Analysis Light Scattering with the Möbiuζ for characterization of macromolecular charge and nanoparticle zeta potential.

Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution.

Wyatt's line of multi-angle static light scattering products couple to size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS), field-flow fractionation (FFF-MALS), and stop-flow composition-gradient systems (CG-MALS). Our dynamic light scattering (DLS) products operate in traditional cuvette as well as on-line and automated, high-throughput modes. We also offer unique instruments for electrophoretic light scattering (MP-PALS), differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
