We invite you to join Nanoscience Instruments for a QSense Workshop & Training Course on June 4 – 6th at the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials, Rutgers University, NJ.
The free workshop on June 4th with the theme “Quantifying Nanoscale Interactions At Surfaces” will feature:
- Invited talks from the wide range of applications including in the fields of biomaterials, pharmaceuticals, material science, polymers, etc.
- QSense instrument demonstrations
- A complementary lunch for all participants
This is a great opportunity to meet, share and network with other QSense users in different fields of scientific research.
The 2-day training course on June 5 – 6th will provide hands-on training of the QSense instrument & QCM-D analysis and an overview of the QCM-D technology & related routine applications.
You’ll gain the hands-on experience needed to operate Biolin Scientific QSense instruments and you’ll learn how to interpret the data for your application. QSense methods and protocols will be reviewed and used throughout the course.
Workshop and Training Course space is limited. Registration is on a first come, first served basis and is required so that we may prepare for lunch and training materials. Please note that there is a fee for the training course and a representative from Nanoscience Instruments will contact you regarding payment.
