Pyrolysis Seminar Series Videos

On June 17 & 18, 2015 two seminars entitled, "Greatly Expand Material Characterization Capabilities with Frontier Lab Pyrolyzers and Shimadzu GC/MS" were presented by Dave Randle (General Manager, Frontier lab) in cooperation with Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc. at Shimadzu's state of the art Solution Center. Dave gives an interesting Pyrolysis/GC-MS seminar that is jammed packed with great information to help educate you on this powerful technique.

The videos are numbered (1-11) in order of viewing. However, you may view a video out of sequence to watch a particular topic of interest. Thank you for your interest in Shimadzu Scientific Instruments and Frontier lab.
