analytica with new Digital Transformation forum
From April 10 to 13, Munich is once again the meeting point of the laboratory industry: analytica, the international trade fair for laboratory technology, analytics and biotechnology, offers many highlights in the supporting program in addition to the exhibition.
With the new Digital Transformation forum in Hall B2, analytica specifically addresses these issues and offers all visitors a realistic view today into Laboratory 4.0 of the future: Topics addressed include big data handling, bioinformatics, digital networking and working effectively in the laboratory. The Digital Transformation forum offers expert lectures and discussion panels on all days of the trade fair. The two associations Life Science Research as well as SPECTARIS support the forum with interesting contributions and discussion panels. In addition, the established “Biotech” (Hall A3) and “Laboratory and Analysis” (Hall B2) forums offer best-practice lectures as well as useful tips for daily laboratory work.
In the Live Labs Food Analysis (Hall A3) and Material Analysis (Hall B1), visitors can experience all conventional procedures or specific methods in a real laboratory environment. In the Live Labs, the work steps from sample preparation to sample measurement to analysis and assessment of the results are shown. In the Material Analysis Live Lab, experts from industry and science give talks and live demonstrations on the latest developments, for example from the areas of sample preparation, substance classes or quality assurance. The Food Analysis Live Lab features innovations in pesticide and residue analysis, possibilities for detecting antibiotics and other pharmaceutical agents and mycotoxin analysis.
At the Personalized Medicine Theme Day on April 13, experts from biotech, pharma and IT diagnostics companies, associations and clusters will discuss the current status and the future direction of personalized medicine. The special exhibition on occupational safety and health at analytica shows how quickly a hazard or accident can occur in the laboratory and how one can protect oneself and also colleagues and employees.
