This year’s Pittsburgh Conference (or Pittcon for short) is taking place in Chicago, from March 1 – March 5, 2020. I noticed the earlier early bird time frame for Pittcon short courses. As in previous years, there is a large section of short courses relevant to conferees. And this year is no different: There are four courses on the program which you might find of interest. And this might be especially true if you happen to be our customer.

Registration Deadline approaching

The discounted short course pricing is valid until January 23rd. However, regular registration is still possible even after that until the conference starts in March. It would be great to see you there! Topics include light scattering, sampling, particle sizing, zeta potential, and chromatography. So this might be ideal to become more familiar with any of these subjects. By the way, this is not instrument-specific, so the techniques and principles rather than specific features of any manufacturers are part of the teaching program. In fact, slides are strictly science.

Here is a list of the courses involving some of our Malvern Panalytical scientists, presenting at Pittcon 2020.
