From 29 – 30 January 2018, LUM GmbH hosts the next, now traditional International Workshop Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing in Berlin, Germany – now as dual event that combines conference & workshop.

The event will be held at the Park Inn By Radisson, directly on Berlin’s famous Alexanderplatz (for booking please use the following e-mail address and reservation code to get special discount rates: reservations@parkinn-berlin.com / Reservation Code: LUM/WS18)

Besides the excellent networking, the event provides the attendees yet another time with the unique opportunity to discuss their questions with international experts and to set future trends in their particular research and development and production fields.

Again, all users, from industry and from research organizations, are kindly invited to highlight their experiences, methods and solutions for the characterization of particle properties and particle interactions. Present your strategies and results based on the use of LUMiSizerLUMiFugeLUMiReaderLUMiReader X-Ray and LUMiFrac.

The evaluation and optimization of separation processes is in focus as it is the development and improvement of formulations in all industrial branches, e.g. in cosmetics and home care, in food, in pharmaceutical industries, in the paints sector as well as in oil industry. The shelf-life prediction for emulsions and suspensions and the accelerated stability testing according to ISO/TR 13097 are of major importance for the event, too.

In the field of adhesion and cohesion analysis, we explicitly address all LUMiFrac users to report on their experiences (see below for more information about your application as conference speaker and abstract submission).

Following the conference & workshop, there will be four-hour-hands- on-courses for LUM instruments at LUM facility in the morning of 31 January. The courses are limited to a total of 16 participants on first come-first served basis.

Scientific Committee Chair: Prof. Dr. D. Lerche, LUM GmbH
