Due to COVID-19, in the interests of safety we are not currently exhibiting at events in person. However there are plenty of virtual events and webinars coming up, to keep you up to date with the scientific community. We’re also available by phone and email to answer all your queries and for remote support.
Follow Blue Scientific for updates about upcoming events, training and webinars:
Werdnesday 10th March 2021, 12-5pm CET
Virtual AFM user meeting with live talks and a virtual demo. The focus is on high resolution imaging and the nanochemical, nanomechanical and nanoelectrical characterisation of advanced materials.
Thursday 11th March 2021, 11am CET
Webinar from Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp about how sub-micron simultaneous Optical-Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy and Raman microscopy (IR+Raman) is being used and published in life science applications, from tissues, to cells and even single bacterial cells. Details and registration…
8th-10th March 2021
Our partners Bruker will have a virtual booth exhibiting their XRF and XRM (aka Micro-XRF) ranges. There’ll also be virtual live demos on the S8 TIGER, S2 PUMA and SkyScan 1273 (Pittcon registration is not required to attend the live demos).
Tuesday 11th March 2021, 5pm CET
Bruker webinar about polymer identification, from reverse engineering to quality control to microplastics. Infrared spectroscopy is particularly well-suited to polymer analysis: it’s non-destructive, sensitive and highly specific. Find out more and see examples in this webinar. Details and registration…
Tuesday 16th March 2021
How AFM-based nanomechanical measurements and machine learning can provide new insights into the mechanical properties of polymeric materials. Presented by Prof. Philippe Leclère, Ph.D. (University of Mons) and hosted by Bruker. Details and registration…
Tuesday 16th March 2021, 2pm CEST
Thursday 18th March 2021, 7pm CEST
How gemmologists can use Raman and photoluminescence for gemstone research and certification. These techniques can be used to analyse artificially treated natural stones and synthetic gems that traditional microscopes fail to distinguish.
Thursday 18th March 2021, 10am or 5pm CET
Bruker webinar about how TXRF trace element analysis can be used for quality control, R&D and analytical services, reducing costs in the food and beverage industry and nutritional science. It’s used for purity control of additives, detecting contamination, analysing metals in brewing and more. Details and registration…
Thursday 25th March 2021, 9am or 5pm CET
