Seminar Tours Postponed— Watch for Updates

Based on the latest guidance from public health officials and travel bans implemented by many organizations, we have decided to postpone our upcoming seminar tours. Our top priority remains the health and safety of all participants at our events, which is why re-scheduling is the right course of action. Our plan is to conduct online alternatives and we hope to offer in-person seminars sometime later this year.

We value our relationship with you and remain committed to enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer. From sample prep to data management to the systems that support complex workflows and applications, we will be with you through this challenging time every step of the way.

Upcoming webinars

Our postponed seminar tours are being presented as a series of convenient webinars. During the second half of May, we will be offering more than two dozen topics covering a variety of applications and techniques. Plan on joining us online!

Mar 01, 2020 - Mar 01, 2020

Solutions for the oil, gas, chemical, and polymer value chain

New dates to be announced: Attend a free, educational seminar to learn how innovative applications and powerful, robust, and easy-to-use technologies can help you improve material research, maintain operational reliability and efficiency, and improve your bottom line. This event will give you the opportunity to network with industry colleagues, ask experts questions about analytical challenges, and learn how we can support you now and into the future.

  • Welcome and Introduction to Thermo Fisher Scientific

  • Viewing the Industry from a Thermo Fisher Scientific Perspective

    Advances in fracking and favorable regulations have driven unprecedented growth in the oil, gas, petrochemical, and polymer industries. Currently, there are over $50 billion in planned or approved new projects in the United States. We will explain how Thermo Fisher Scientific can support those investments and offer our vision for the markets.

  • Distilling it Down – Integrated Analytical Solutions for the Laboratory

    This presentation will provide examples of Thermo Fisher Scientific solutions that support analytical testing across the entire supply chain, from exploration and extraction of crude oil to producing final materials.

  • Building Confidence in Quality Assurance

    Throughout the manufacturing process, routine analytical techniques are used to ensure production optimization and product quality. This presentation explores various quality control applications in the chemical and polymer industry.

  • Supporting Process Water Management in the Analytical Lab

    Water is a vital resource for refineries, petrochemical plants, and polymer units. To keep processes moving forward, each requires many measurements for multiple analytes. We will discuss a variety of topics including: which technology provides the best measurement for your needs; where automation can be applied to reduce error, hazards, and tedious wet techniques; and when you should use ion chromatography versus titration.

  • Pushing the Boundaries in Material Research

    The development of next-generation advanced materials requires analytical tools that cover multiple hyphenated techniques to save material usage while gaining additional analytical insight from the sample. In this talk, we will explore various applications across R&D.

  • It's ELEMENTary - Managing Challenges in Inorganic Analysis

    Inorganic species, metals, gases, and organometallics play an important role in the research and analytical lab. Learn how ICP-OES, ICP-MS, and ICP-MS/MS can help protect expensive catalysts, prevent process fouling or off-spec product, and meet environmental regulations.

  • Breakout Session: Tips and Tricks for Troubleshooting Chromatography and Spectroscopy Instruments

    Our experts will share tips for instrument maintenance and troubleshooting, discuss analytical challenges, and address common workflow issues. This is a great opportunity to have your specific questions answered by our service and applications specialists in GC, GC-MS, IC, AA, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, automated photometers, Raman, FTIR, NIR, UV-Vis, XRD, XRF, rheology, extrusion, software, and consumables.

  • Sweating the Small Stuff - Spectroscopy on the Micro Scale

    Research and quality assurance labs often must analyze materials on the micro level. Combining optical microscopy with vibrational spectroscopy can provide a holistic view of the structure and functional relationship of the material and can be used for identifying foreign materials and defects.

  • Where Did All the Helium Go? Implementing Alternative GC Carrier Gases

    Helium is the most widely used carrier gas for capillary GC. However, severe shortages are impacting availability and driving up costs. Our experts will provide their insights and discuss the pros and cons of using hydrogen as a viable, sustainable, and affordable alternative.

  • Improving Manufacturing Quality and Efficiency via Process Analytical Techniques

    This presentation will focus on how to get real-time chemical information for tighter process control, lower manufacturing costs, and managing product quality. We will review use cases for the implementation of near infrared spectroscopy and multivariate analysis in process control and monitoring.
