Wednesday 1 November 2017 | National Physical Laboratory, Teddington

This symposium, sponsored by Markes International, is focused on new applications for thermal desorption–gas chromatography from various industry sectors. It is for anyone involved in thermal desorption (TD) as an analytical technique, or for anyone considering using it for their work. How much do you know about the breadth of applications for TD? Do you want to know some more?

During the one-day symposium you’ll hear from six industry TD experts on the new application areas they are working on. There will also be sufficient time for networking opportunities with like-minded analysts, where you can exchange opinions and ideas.
