18 May 2010: Malvern, UK: Malvern Instruments has introduced a comprehensive eLearning course that details light scattering for materials characterization using the company’s Zetasizer Nano system. Course modules introduce dynamic and electrophoretic light scattering techniques as well as sample preparation, instrument configuration and how to set up standard operating procedures (SOPs). The new eLearning courses are a further addition to Malvern’s extensive and highly regarded education and training portfolio.

Two course admissions are being offered free of charge with every Zetasizer Nano purchased. Providing a convenient alternative to traditional face-to-face training courses these allow the system operator to work at their own pace and at a time of their choosing. To enable the course attendee to monitor their progress there is a test section at the end of each module. Additional places can be purchased as and when required and are ideal for rapidly introducing new users to the system.

Malvern has a long track record in providing high quality education and support for a wide range of materials characterization techniques and applications. An early pioneer in delivering web-based seminars and courses, Malvern has also built a vast electronic ‘knowledge base’ housing freely accessible materials including application notes, white papers, case studies, published articles and on-demand presentations.
