GGPF Short Course “Microscopy of Polymers”

We will be demonstrating the Microsupport Axis Pro micromanipulator at the Golden Gate Polymer Forum Two-Day Short Course: Microscopy of Polymers”  on May 7 and 8, 2019

This two-day day short course is presented by a recognized expert on the Microscopy of Polymers with applications in medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Attendees will gain an understanding of the basic principles of the diverse range of microscopy techniques, including state-of-the-art and classic knowledge. Materials that will be addressed include polyurethanes, block-copolymers, hydrogels, polyethylenes, fluoropolymers, and polymer-like materials including pyrolytic carbon and biologicals. Thisshort course will include case studies where a variety of microscopy instruments and characterization techniques were utilized to solve real problems in R&D, quality assessment and control, and patent litigation.

This course will benefit engineers and scientists who wish to understand the broad range of imaging instruments that can be applied to polymer characterization, includingespecially those working with biomedical devices and pharmaceuticals. The goal will be to provide up-to-date and “classic” knowledge regarding these techniques, and how they may be applied to the solution of practical problems.
