PolyRMC hosts an annual GPC Academy in collaboration with Fluence Analytics, Polymer Standards and Services, Waters Corporation, and Testa Analytical at its facilities in New Orleans, LA. Attendees will learn the background and practice of GPC (also refereed to as Size Exclusion Chromatography, SEC) as well as the latest methods, including multi-dectection using light scattering and viscosity, and associated analyses. This intensive The 2.5-day course offers an in-depth overview of GPC characterization, brief introduction to novel characterization techniques and methods, and a focus on individual attendee applications. New techniques, technologies and alternatives to GPC for polymer characterization will also be presented. There will be a 2-day overview of methods and techniques followed by a half day hands on component. This intensive course is for much more in-depth and hands on training than a typical one hour webinar. The course is hosted by a non-profit, academic research Center at Tulane University, with participation from private vendors, which ensures a deeper focus on content and education over any one specific product or brand. Throughout the course, attendees are taught by world GPC experts and regularly receive one on one Q&A opportunities to discuss specific applications with the instructors. This course is ideal for quality control personnel, R&D and analytical departments, process engineers, technicians, etc.
