The world’s largest annual conference and exposition on laboratory science is only a few days away. From March 17-21, PITTCON™ will populate the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia with scientists, students, exhibitors, and other industry professionals. “It’s like the Auto Show or the Flower Show, but for scientists!” writes CBS Reporter Lauren Lipton.
According to PITTCON™ President Ronald Bargiel, who first attended the conference in 1980 in New York City, “I was overwhelmed by the size of the conference and the excitement of a new city. This year in Philadelphia we are going back to all the excitement and flavor that I experienced in New York.”
The 2013 show features 1,926 exhibitor booths, 100 short courses, 62 poster sessions, and 12 workshops. Cole-Parmer will be ready to meet attendees in booth #2225.
“We’re excited to introduce some of our new products, which will offer enhanced versatility in labs,” said Cole-Parmer Marketing Manager Brian Buzinski. “We’re also taking requests for our new 2013/14 Cole-Parmer® Sourcebook and one lucky visitor will win a Nintendo® Wii U Basic System.”
Booth visitors can view the new Masterflex® L/S® Precision Modular Drives. These peristaltic pump drives allow users to position the motor and controller separately—ideal for limited spaces, hoods, or isolation chambers. The new non-DEHP formulation of Masterflex® Tygon® E-Lab Pump Tubing, containing no BPA or phthalates, will also be on display. This versatile tubing handles virtually all inorganic chemicals and viscous fluids and offers near-global compliance.
Other new lab instruments to check out:
- The new Cole-Parmer® Variable-Speed Clinical Centrifuge ensures powerful and complete separation of serum and plasma specimens in samples.
- The new LabTouch Water Activity Meter uses the latest noncontact infrared sampling technology and a maintenance-free Aw sensor designed to measure almost any kind of sample.
- The new PBI Shredder SG3 System enables users to achieve better sample integrity and longer DNA. The device creates a closed system in which to safely prepare samples.
- The Cole-Parmer® Rotational Viscometer determines the dynamic viscosity of samples in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biofuels, adhesives, and more. It is available in basic, intermediate, and advanced models.
Stop by and meet Brian and our team of experts from March 18-21.
