Industrial Applications of AFM

Who is this webinar for: Bio and life science researchers

About:

AFM has long been a critical metrology tool for measuring nanometer resolution topographic roughness and nanostructure. However commercially available AFMs limited the sample size and shape to either small sample, or wafer/waferlike geometries. In other words, flat samples. If your samples didn’t fit into those size/shape constraints, your options were to either destroy your part or measure discrete regions which may or may not be applicable to your needs. Today, however, Nanosurf takes AFM out of the flat sample world and into 3 dimensions. With the option of multiple scanner designs and knowledge to build 3, 4, 5 or more axis staging, working with real parts is now a reality. This brings AFM into metrology for complex optics, machined parts, gratings and more. Come learn how AFM can improve your metrology without destroying your parts..

Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance Webinar: Introduction to Benchtop NMR Spectroscopy

Benchtop NMR Spectroscopy

Due to its popularity, we are re-running one of the webinars we held last year, “Introduction to Benchtop NMR Spectroscopy” on Wednesday 28 April at 08:00 BST and 16:00 BST. This time, the webinar will include new applications in the field of battery research.

Benchtop NMR is a versatile and powerful tool for analytical chemistry. This webinar will cover the basic concepts of NMR and what is easily achievable with the X-Pulse broadband benchtop NMR system. Following the success of last year’s webinar, this webinar will also include new applications in the field of battery research.

By attending this webinar you will learn:

  • What benchtop NMR is
  • What types of data can be collected
  • How this data can be used to understand your chemistry
  • How X-Pulse allows you to analyse a wide range of nuclei

Date: Wednesday 28 April

Time: 08:00 BST (09:00 CET) and 16:00 BST (17:00 CET, 11:00 EDT)

Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance Webinar: Oil and Fat Analysis for Improved Yield and Quality throughout the Food Chain

Webinar Oil and Fat Analysis

During this webinar, hosted by Oils & Fats International, we will discuss how both time domain NMR (TD-NMR) and benchtop NMR spectroscopy are used to measure oils and fats throughout the food chain; from harvest through to manufacturing of ingredients and the food products themselves. For example, fat content is an important parameter for quality assurance and control of snacks, confectionery and food ingredients. Other TD-NMR measurables include the melting profile of edible oils/fats and droplet size in food emulsions such as dairy and non-dairy spreads.

Benchtop NMR spectroscopy can quantify the proportion of saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and omega-3 fatty acids in a variety of foods. Furthermore, spectra can be used to distinguish and authenticate different vegetable oils and meats as well as test for robusta in Arabica coffee.

Please note: if you are unable to join us, the session will be recorded and communicated with registered guests only. Please register to receive this communication.

Joint webinar on Dental Implant 3D Printing & Surface Characterization

SRC Sensofar Dental webinar LinkedIN image

How to Harness the Advantages of 3D Printing of Ceramics for Dental Applications

3D printing of ceramics enables a design freedom that is not achievable using tradition methods in the dental industry.

We will discuss how we can achieve with our Ceramics 3D printers tight tolerances while maintaining high strength and hardness that are
comparable to tradition manufacturing technologies.

Case studies will highlight some of the success stories that we have achieved for dental applications.

Best Tips for Dental Implants Surface Characterization

Our experts will bring you all they have learned from the multiple surface measurements they have taken on samples from the dental implant field.

Key Topics:

  • How to evaluate the roughness of a dental implant?
  • Other topographic evaluations (different surface color, reflectivity, shape, coatings, texture…
  • What to find in a 3D topography that you cannot find in a 2D topography?
  • The most suitable techniques for Dental implants Research and Quality Control

Biolin Scientific Webinar

Surface wettability and adhesion are vital phenomena in a variety of industries ranging from coatings industry to pharmaceutical and biomaterial industry. A simple and efficient contact angle measurement is often used for characterizing the water repellency and other properties such as how successful a surface treatment has been. In this webinar, we will go through the background and significance of different contact angles: where do they originate from, why are they important and how they can be measured in practice. We will give examples of situations where different kind of contact angle measurements are effective in characterizing the water repellency of a surface.

The cancer world isn’t flat: why cancer researchers adopt 3-D bioprinting

webinar regarding cellular physiology

The growing push for 3-D tissue models is limited by challenges in automated handling, processing and scalability of the technology to various types of materials and high-throughput applications. To meet these challenges, ROKIT Healthcare has developed all-in-one bioprinting platforms and human-cell derived ECM bioinks that allow researchers to biologically mimic the formation of complex, heterogeneous 3-D structures and to scale the technology to high-throughput applications. This webinar will focus on the platform’s usage in cancer biology. It will discuss evidence for 3-D bioprinting capturing altered proliferation and cell morphology profiles, revealing more realistic drug responses, and mimicking vascularized tumor microenvironments – to suggest why bioprinting of cancer cells is a scientifically rigorous method to generate physiologically relevant cancer models for preclinical screening and testing, as well as for new therapy research. You will learn about:
– Key advantages of 3D bioprinting over other techniques
– Five alterations in cellular physiology of cancer cells in 3D vs. 2D
