The Pittcon 2013 Exposition, which takes place March 17-21 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, features emerging analytical technologies for analytical chemistry, drug discovery and development, nanotechnology, life sciences, and other disciplines. Instrument manufacturers frequently introduce new products or announce updates to current technologies at the event.
The exposition floor includes 1,926 booths and 18 seminar rooms, hosting 1,011 exhibitors (as of March 1, 2013) displaying products and services used by the scientific community in industrial, academic, and government labs. A mini-museum display of instrumentation, presented by the Chemical Heritage Foundation, celebrates the 100th anniversary of mass spectrometry.
The conference program features workshops, symposia, and short courses on chromatography, molecular and atomic spectroscopy, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, and lab-on-chip technology.
