Malvern Panalytical will be sponsoring the upcoming British Society of Rheology meeting, held in Birmingham on 17th and 18th December. Please join us to talk about “Complex Fluids for Performance” and learn how rheometry and rheology can be utilized to study complex formulations in both the research and industrial environments. With topics ranging from food and saliva to oilfield and injection-molding of highly filled suspensions, this conference aims to capture the diversity of rheological studies and highlight its importance as an analytical tool. Whether we are using rheometry to help study the stability and performance of a new formulation or determining the correct shear conditions for processing, this meeting aims to allow the networking and discussions to take place in a relaxed and friendly environment!
