X-ray Diffraction Single Crystal Online Users' Meeting

X-ray Diffraction Single Crystal Online Users' Meeting


We would like to invite you to join us for our single crystal users' meeting to be held on April 7-8, 2021. The meeting will be held online via Zoom and will take place at 14.00-17.00 GMT on both days to allow our users from across Europe and the Americas to attend. 

We will have talks from our applications team as well as from some of our customers. We aim to make our users' meetings a valuable educational experience for all those who attend, so if you’d like to learn more about your diffractometer, recent and upcoming developments and meet others in our community please join us by registering below.
