Routine Spectroscopy in Analytical Labs

Mai 14, 2009

Thermo Fisher Scientific will host a series of free informative seminars on routine spectroscopy in the analytical laboratory. This seminar will explain the range of spectroscopic techniques currently available for use in the quality control or analytical laboratory. The essential theory of Infra-Red, Near-Infra-Red, Raman and UV spectroscopy will be covered, together with how to select the best technique for a given process or application. The seminar is aimed at scientists and analysts looking to commission, expand or replace spectroscopic analytical capabilities in their laboratory.
Dates are:
June 2, 2009 – Hemel Hempstead, UK
June 3, 2009 – Leeds, UK
June 4, 2009 – Edinburgh, UK

Attendance is free of charge. For registration visit:

3D in 12 Days

April 30, 2009

During June, 13-25, the 14th annual Living Cell Course will take place at the University of British Columbia Medicine School (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. This residential course concentrates on all aspects of the 3D microscopy of living cells. Designed for biological research scientists and advanced graduate students, who apply – or plan to – modern 3D imaging, the course want to open up-to-date methods to a wider selection of scientists. The aim of this intense course is to bring students and manufacturers together. The course’s topics include amongst others scanning systems like AODs, mirrors and disks, deconvolution of wide-field and confocal data, dye design, poisson noise QE and S/N, calcium imaging, as well as „how to keep cells alive“.

Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy

April 15, 2009

PicoQuants 7th Short Course on Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy, taking place from Nov. 9-12, 2009, in Berlin, Germany is intended for individuals wishing an introduction of the basics of fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. The course is held in cooperation with Dr. J.R. Lakowicz from the Center of Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CFS) in Baltimore. It will focus on time-resolved spectroscopy applications (i.e. measurements on bulk samples). Registration deadline is Aug. 31, 2009.

Seminar on Raman Spectroscopy

März 9, 2009

Thermo Fisher Scientific will host a free of charge informative seminar on the increasingly popular and implemented Raman spectroscopic technique. The seminar will be held on April 23, 2009 in Hemel Hempstead, UK. It is aimed at scientists looking to expand their analysis capabilities in either routine or research laboratories. Attendees will have the opportunity to see Raman systems in operation and the opportunity to ask questions about specific applications. For registration please visit:
