The two selected applicants received training in the Global Application Development Center in the head office from October 7 to November 1.
Dedicated programs were prepared for each lecturer; one focused on food safety issues that influence people's health, while the second one concentrated on R&D and quality control of polymer materials, which have gained attention as advanced materials. They learned about the characteristics of analytical and measuring instruments used for these purposes, analytical methods including pretreatment, and their application in practical cases. They also operated a variety of analytical and measuring instruments, including our ultra fast mass spectrometry (UFMS) series, spectrophotometers, thermal analyzers, and material testing machines, and analyzed the acquired data.
VNU is one of the major centers of advanced education and research in Vietnam. The university and Shimadzu aim to develop and utilize a jointly established cutting-edge research laboratory.
