Live Interactive Web Series

Gather on Fridays at 11 AM PST | 2 PM EST for our live interactive web series.

We’ll work through a topic of the week (roughly 60 minutes) and discuss any questions that come up along the way. During these sessions, we’ll talk about how to care for your SEC-MALS or FFF-MALS system, help you brush up on your ASTRA and DYNAMICS data processing, discuss measuring dn/dc values and why dn/dc is important, and see how stable RI baselines are achievable.

Working with polydisperse samples? We’ll see how to leverage ASTRA’s distribution analysis and results fitting features. Special topics on error analysis, batch MALS work, and more.

The live interactive web series are 100% live sessions, with anonymous Q&A welcome during and after the discussion. Free for all to attend.

Register below! The live interactive web series are held on select Friday afternoons at 11 AM PST | 2 PM EST.
