Edinburgh Instruments Asian Webinars - July 2020

We are delighted to announce a series of Webinars this Summer by our Taiwan business partners, Rightek.

For those working in the field of molecular spectroscopy research, the webinars will feature a series of talks given by a number of the leading researchers in their field, talks by Edinburgh Instruments Application Scientists covering the most recent developments in fluorescence, as well as talks aimed at existing system users of our FS5 Spectrofluorometer, covering useful techniques and tips for improved measurement.

30th Jun
Green Lu, Technical Specialist, Rightek
How does the optical design of the FS5 influence the accuracy of photoluminescence data
(Mandarin Language)

Time:
15.30-16.30 HKT (Hong Kong Time), TST (Taipei Standard Time), SST (Singapore Standard Time)
16.30-17.30 JST (Japan Standard Time), KST (Korea Standard Time)

The accuracy and sensitivity of a Spectrofluorometer are heavily dependent on its optic design. Green Lu, Technical Specialist with Rightek, will share how the optical design, and other features of the FS5, produce high precision and sensitivity in your measurements, as well as highlighting how various source, detector and accessory options allow for a wide range of applications.
