This is a joint event between Wyatt Technology and SOLVE Research and Consultancy. Wyatt Technology is developing techniques and instrumentation for absolute macromolecular and nanoparticle characterization. SOLVE is a CRO operating specialized instrumentation for advanced material characterization.


Previous workshops

In 2016 we held a workshop with the objective to introduce AF4 as a technique for the analysis of materials such as polymers, biopolymers and nanoparticles. We discussed AF4’s capabilities to separate, detect and characterize materials when coupled to detectors such as MALS, RI, UV, etc. and how the data can explain the behavior of the material. At this workshop we also discussed how the information can be complemented with other characterization techniques such as SEC, DLS, TEM, SAXS, among others.

A great workshop – anyone who is interested in learning about AF4 should attend

The workshop had a good balance between lectures, discussions and practical presentations
