REGISTRATION IS OPEN! Join the International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing 2024 in Berlin

In 2024, LUM GmbH hosts the next, now traditional International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing.

Emulsion and suspension enthusiasts, tensile testers, coaters and lightweight constructors are cordially invited to learn new analytical strategies and results from scientific and industrial experts. Acquire new methods to accelerate and simplify your R&D and QC processes with LUMiReader PSA & LUMiReader X-Ray, LUMiFuge, LUMiSizer, LUMiSpoc, LUMiFrac (for composite materials) and LUMiFlector.


Conference topics

  • Particle & Surface Characterization
  • Real-time & Accelerated Stability (Solid-Liquid-Separation/Liquid-Liquid-Separation)
  • Materials Testing
  • Product Parameter Monitoring


Due to popular demand the conference will again take place at the ABACUS Tierpark Hotel in Berlin. The conference starts on June 10 at 9 am and is closed on June 11 at 7 pm.

Five different shortcourses will take place at the LUM headquarters in Berlin-Adlershof on June 12 from 9 am to 3 pm. Each shortcourse is limited to four conference participants. Few places are left.
