Spectroscopy Week: Virtual Users Meeting

Join Spectroscopy Week:  Virtual Users Meeting  

Research, production and analytical laboratories worldwide rely on spectroscopy and other characterization tools for the rapid development of new innovative materials and the efficient qualitative and quantitative analysis of those materials.  This is evident in areas such as forensics, polymers, food & beverage and pharmaceuticals. With these tools, labs can identify dangerous substances, support polymer innovation, ensure the safety and enjoyment of our food, and deliver effective medicines. 

Join us for Spectroscopy Week: a Virtual Users Meeting where international technical experts and scientists will apply and demonstrate these critical tools in real world applications.  

Forensics - Monday, May 24

Polymers - Tuesday, May 25

Food and Beverage - Wednesday, May 26

Pharmaceuticals - Thursday, May 27
