International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing 2022

January 24 - 25, 2022 - virtual


In 2022, LUM GmbH hosts the next, now traditional International Conference for Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing. For the first time, the conference will be held exclusively virtual.

The conference organizer invites all world-wide LUM instrument users to learn strategies and results from scientific and industrial experts using LUMiReader PSA & LUMiReader X-Ray, LUMiFuge, LUMiSizer, LUMiSpoc, LUMiFrac (for composite materials) and LUMiFlector. Registration is open!

First speakers expected from

HP Indigo Ltd., Israel
KIT (Institut für Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik und Mechanik), Germany
University of Leeds, UK
Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany


More soon tba.

Conference topics include:

Particle & Surface Characterization

  • Particle size distribution of nano- and microparticles / Hansen Dispersibility Parameter/Hansen Solubility Parameter / Particle density distribution / Particle surface characterization

Real-time & Accelerated Stability

  • Direct accelerated stability testing of dispersions / Real-time separation in emulsions and suspensions / Comparative and predictive shelf life for dispersions (ISO/TR 13097) / Stability testing of cosmetic products (ISO/TR 18811)

Materials Testing
