Multivariate Analysis of Spectroscopic Data

March 18-19, 2012 | Oslo, Norway

Course Overview

The Multivariate Analysis of Spectroscopic Data training is aimed at researchers and analysts who work with spectroscopic data, and are already familiar with fundamental multivariate methods such as PCA and PLS regression.

Who should participate in this program?

The courses have been designed for individuals:

  • Involved in R&D, product development, process optimization, quality control & monitoring
  • Working with spectroscopic instruments (NIR, FTIR, UV, UV/VIS, NMR, DAS, Raman, Mass Spectroscopy) chromatography instruments (LC, GC, HPLC), production data, R&D, quality control or production processes

No prior knowledge of The Unscrambler® is required to attend our courses.
