Chalmers Technical University, Gothenburg – April 11th, 2024

Join us for a day dedicated to the science of Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCM-D). Explore the latest in QCM-D applications, engage with specialists, and connect with peers in the field.

Date: April 11th, 2024
Location: Chalmers Technical University (PJ Hall, Fysik-huset) Gothenburg.
Cost: Free (500 SEK fee for cancellations after April 5th)

Event Highlights

  • Morning Demos: Witness the new cutting-edge QSense® Omni in action, presented by Biolin application specialists. Demos include Polyelectrolyte Multilayer Build-Up and Enzymatic Degradation of Cellulose.
  • Afternoon Seminars: Starting after lunch in the PJ Hall, enjoy a keynote talk by Prof. Fredrik Höök, followed by 20-minute presentations from seasoned QCM-D users across various applications, including nanoplastic desorption studies, detergent analysis, and electrochemistry with QCM-D.
