Erwin Vogler at Penn State, who works in biocompatibility and wetting of biomaterials. A recent paper, "Traube-Rule Interpretation of Protein Adsorption at the Liquid-Vapor Interface" (Langmuir, 2003, 19 pg 10342-10352) describes work performed on an FTA2000 and is available on his web site (under Projects) and from ACS by subscription.
Annual short courses taught by Professor John Berg now include an FTA200.
