Toronto Light Scattering User Meeting & Workshop

Join us in Toronto!
October 8th User Meeting: Advanced Topics in Light Scattering
October 9th Workshop: Light Scattering Characterization

Light Scattering User Meetings

Wyatt's regional user meetings are a great opportunity to meet and interact with other scientists who utilize Wyatt light scattering instruments. Learn how your colleagues approach biophysical characterization, pick up some tips and tricks on method development, and spend some quality time with Wyatt staff. Registration is free for this event.

Light Scattering Workshop

New to light scattering? Wondering how light scattering works and how it’s applied? Wyatt's regional light scattering workshops are a wonderful opportunity to learn the “basics” of light scattering and see live demonstrations of Wyatt instruments. Learn the limits and capabilities of light scattering and how these methods can complement your existing suite of tools. Registration is free for this event.

  • Determination of size, size distributions of nanoparticles
  • Formulation and stability of biotherapeutics
  • Characterizing vaccines, viruses and VLPs
  • Detection and quantification of aggregates, large and small
  • Analyzing biomolecular interactions

What’s not covered: Theoretical concepts underpinning the light scattering toolkit, including: SEC-MALS, FFF-MALS, CG-MALS, Dynamic Light Scattering, Electrophoretic Light Scattering are covered in the Wyatt Light Scattering Workshop that accompanies the user meeting.
