Seminars to focus on spectroscopic solutions

San Jose, CA October 28, 2003 Thermo Electron is running a series of complimentary spectroscopic solutions seminars which will highlight theory, products, applications and techniques related to molecular spectroscopy and elemental analysis.

The seminars will review the theories and applications of Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR), IR microspectroscopy, UV-Visible, fluorescence, and sampling techniques. They are aimed at both new and experienced users of molecular spectroscopy who are interested in understanding more about infrared, near-infrared, Raman, UV-Visible, and fluorescence techniques.

The company says that attending the seminars will help spectroscopists to:

– Refresh their knowledge and learn about new technologies and applications;

– Learn how to make their lab more productive, from using intelligent software to innovative sampling techniques and combined experimental methods;

– See new products and technology in action.

Seminar topics will include: FT-IR theory and system design, system software operation and data management, FT-IR sampling techniques, advancements in IR micro-sampling technology, advanced FT-IR spectroscopy, UV-Visible and fluorescence spectroscopy, applications of dispersive and FT-Raman spectroscopy, and FT-NIR for product quality and process improvement.

The seminars are being run across North America; the next one in Canada will be held in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia, Botanical Gardens Recption Centre on November 18. Registration details are available at
