qNMR Summit is approaching soon!

We are looking forward to the next qNMR Summit in 2020. We have a beautiful, historic venue selected for another exciting meeting!

The “qNMR Summit” is a regular feature of the conference landscape. After 5 previous events in Europe and the USA, we are back in Europe again for the 6th qNMR Summit.

The scope and adoption of using qNMR for compound quantitation, purity determination, mixtures analysis, etc. is a growing field. The adoption od NMR for the purpose may be attributable, in part, to the method being a “universal detector”, where all species have the same response.

You should attend this meeting regardless of your technical level in quantitation: there is something for everyone. The meeting is usually quite small and intimate, and well supported by sponsors. This affords the best opportunity for you to interact with scientists and vendors.

Finally, we have the location. We are proud to be holding the event in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Situated in the North-Western, Galician region, the city has enchanted visitors for hundreds of years. The charm of the Old City derives from its architecture, unique role in the Christian religion, and its famous gastronomy.

Please set these dates aside for the meeting. More details and registration will be forthcoming. Contact us with considerations to make this meeting a great success. Local organizer: mike@mestrelab.com

A big thank you to all qNMR Summit Sponsors!
