Pre-conference Workshop
August 13-14, 2016 Colorado School of Mines


The Pre-conference, Hands-on Workshop will be Saturday, August 13 to Sunday, August 14, 2016 from 8:00AM - 5:00PM. The workshop will focus on characterization of nanoparticles using single particle ICP-MS and asymmetrical flow & centrifugal FFF. Attendees will get hands-on experience in data collection and processing. Demonstrations using other analysis techniques will be provided by representatives of several instrumentation manufacturers on Sunday afternoon. Details of the methods to be demonstrated will be provided at a later date.


Dr. James F Ranville (CSM)
Dr. Chady Stephan (Perkin Elmer)
Dr. Soheyl Tadjiki (Postnova Analytics)
Dr. Geert Cornelis (Swedish Agricultural University)



Morning lectures on single particle ICP-MS and FFF will be followed by an afternoon of hands on data collection using both AF4 and Centrifugal FFF instruments. Single particle ICP-MS data collection, using the PE NexION 350, will be performed on nanoparticle samples and fractions collected from the FFF. Instruction on the use of the Syngistix nano application model will be given.


Further processing and analysis of the FFF and single particle ICP-MS data will be performed in the morning. Instruction on the use of the NanoCount software, for analysis of nanoparticles near the size detection limit, will be given. Afternoon demonstrations on other nanomaterial characterization methods will be given by industry representatives. Demonstrations by CytoViva and Malvern will also be given from 2:00-4:00PM.

Registration for the workshop is now closed - we have reached our maximum number of attendees.
