Wyatt Technology Europe's acclaimed training courses are held in our European headquarters in Dernbach, Germany, that are guaranteed to de-mystify light scattering and explain how to get the most from your Wyatt Technology equipment! When you enroll for one of our training courses you can expect intensive hardware and software training in our newly established and spacious laboratory. You can also expect to have a lot of fun, even though you're working hard!
2014 Training Dates:
(in German, closed)
New 2015 Training Dates:
The lessons are taught by combining lectures, quizzes, hands on lab work, and individual instruction based upon the background and application of each student. The LSU Training Manual and CD is a valuable take-home resource for practical applications. With 5 instructors and a maximum of about 10 students there is ample time for individual help. Students are encouraged to bring their light scattering data files for individual consultations. Social time is also scheduled to allow the students to learn from each other and to interact with Wyatt Technology's staff in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Who Should Attend:
The lessons learned in our training courses will be of tremendous benefit to those individuals who:
- Purchase a new Wyatt Technology instrument
- Change job responsibilities, and will be using a DAWN, miniDAWN, DynaPro and/or Eclipse instrument for the first time
- Have been using Wyatt Technology's instruments and want to increase their knowledge of light scattering and/or FFF theory and its applications
- Are responsible for finding new applications for light scattering and/or FFF within their research group
Every month there is one week at Wyatt Technology where all training courses are held. For more information about each training course, please click on the links below:
Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS):
1,5 days, Thursday 9:00 AM to Friday 2:15 PM (2 hours additional training on own samples is optional; seminar ends 4:15 PM in these cases). Click here to see the training schedule.
Massive-Parallel Phase Analysis Light Scattering (MP-PALS):
1,5 days, Thursday 9:00 AM to Friday 2:15 PM (2 hours additional training on own samples is optional; seminar ends 4:15 PM in these cases). Click here o see the training schedule.
Multi-Angle Light Scattering (MALS):
2,5 days, Tuesday 9:00 AM to Thursday 2:15 PM. Click here to see the training schedule.
Field Flow Fractionation (FFF):
1,5 days, Thursday 12:30 PM to Friday 4:15 PM. Click here to see the training schedule.
All training courses cover basics of theory as well as intensive software and hardware training. After having attended you should be able to install and run your equipment. Installation and instrument service is part of the seminar, and so are software and hardware trainings. Wyatt Technology organizes transportation and on-site meals throughout the course.
What our customers say about our training courses:
"A real good mixture of lab sessions and seminar work. I especially found the computer course and trouble shooting of the ASTRA software very useful."
- K. V., Pharmaceutical Company
"All trainers make a very competent and ambitious impression. Very good work!"
- K. B., Chemical Company
"The first day was very heavy on theory and equations. But on the last day of LSU everything began to make sense and the possibilities of what I can use light scattering for became clear to me - especially the protein conjugate session was very nice."
A. G., University
"I enjoyed the training and learned a lot! The hotel accommodation, meals, and training facilities were excellent!"
