Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced that it will offer an extended global program in 2008 of basic rheology seminars and specialist seminars on various subjects in material characterization.
Dr. Frítz Soergel, rheology seminar manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: "Our clients will receive application-related and practically-orientated instruction at our training centers in Karlsruhe (Germany), Somerset, Somerset County (New Jersey, USA), Breda (Netherlands), Paris (France), Mumbai (India) and Shanghai (China). In this way we support them in optimizing their application and also in developing innovative applications.“
At one-day compact seminars, attendees receive instruction on how rheological measuring methods can be used efficiently. Rheological topics are covered either in general or in particular as well as by multidisciplinary speakers.
Attendance at the compact seminars is free of charge. The basic seminar "Applied Rheology" provides detailed theoretical and practical knowledge to enable attendees to carry out and interpret rheological measurements in a qualified manner, and includes the following modules:
• Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoWin Software
• Basics and rotational testing
• Viscoelasticity, creep and oscillatory testing.
