The next Moisture Sorption Analysis Seminar, the 10th MSAS, will take place 27th+28th March 2019 in Um, Germany.
Moisture Sorption Analysis Seminar (MSAS)
Moisture sorption analysis as a method of material analysis in industry and research.
- introduction to basic principles and mechanisms of moisture sorption analysis
- setup and operation of moisture sorption analyzers
- procedures for calibration and validation of sorption instruments
- successful preparation and execution of experiments
- interpretation, processing and evaluation of results
- additional methods for and their implementation as part of analytical strategies
- discussion of applications in research and industry (pharma, food, textiles, building materials, electronics, etc.)
- opportunity to talk to sorption experts and users
Why to attend to the MSAS
The behaviour of materials under different humidity conditions is a crucial factor in many areas of research and industry (food, pharmaceuticals, textiles, polymers, agrochemicals, building chemistry, etc.).
Stability, shelf-life, hydration/dehydration and drying behaviour – to mention just a few – are important issues in this context, and knowledge about moisture-induced changes is considered to be indispensable for development and production.
The analysis of such processes can be very challenging and requires a proper experimental approach and special equipment.
As a manufacturer of dynamic vapor sorption instruments and humidity generators, we noticed that there is a huge need for information about how to plan, perform and evaluate sorption experiments.
So we teamed up with the Institute of Pharmacy of the University of Innsbruck to hold regular seminars on the theoretical and practical aspects of moisture sorption analysis.
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Ulrich Griesser – Institute of Pharmacy of the University of Innsbruck
Jürgen Dillenz – ProUmid GmbH & Co. KG
Dr. Roman Kirsch – ProUmid GmbH & Co. KG
and invited speakers from industry and research

Das MSAS takes place at the conference center of our neighbouring company ZwickRoell:
ZwickRoell GmbH & Co. KG, August-Nagel-Straße 23, 89079 Ulm
There is a special arrangement with the COMFOR hotel, located near the train station (1km) and next the world famous Münster dome close to the historical city centre.
COMFOR hotel, Frauenstraße 51, 89073 Ulm,

Special single room rate for a single room: 99€/night incl. breakfast (available until 20th February 2019)
Please refer to ProUmid when booking a room.
ProUmid will organize a shuttle bus from the hotel to the seminar venue and back to the hotel.
After the conference dinner, we will follow a medieval watchman (or woman) on a tour through the historical quarters with plenty of anecdotes and stories from the medieval Ulm. The tour will take about 90 minutes and will end with a drink in one of the tavernas in the historic old town.
