Mar 18 Analytical Spectrophotometer Metrology Short Course – Anaheim, CA

Although the qualification of UV-VIS spectrophotometers is required for regulatory compliance, little guidance is provided on how to actually accomplish this in an analytical science-based manner from a metrological perspective so that the process can withstand scientific scrutiny and eliminate laboratory calibration risk. Stranaska’s short course on “Analytical UV-VIS Absorption Spectrophotometer Metrology” is a unique educational opportunity where you can learn in person from company experts on how to recognize the analytical science that underscores the scientific credibility and defensibility of spectrophotometer qualification approaches and reference material artifacts.
