Exhibitors quick to sign up for Lab Innovations 2015

Innovation will take centre stage, with numerous exhibitors using the show to launch new products and services to the laboratory market

More than 100 industry leading suppliers have already booked stands for Lab Innovations 2015, the UK’s only show dedicated to the latest laboratory technology and consumables, analytics and biotech equipment, which returns to Birmingham’s NEC on 4 - 5 November 2015.

Those registered for the show include an array of first-time exhibitors, including Scientific Laboratory Supplies, Bambi Air Compressors, Falcon Scientific, Radleys, Ohaus and Zinsser Analytic. They will join major returning names such as Anton Paar, Buchi UK, Mettler Toledo, Oxford Biosystems Cadama, Retsch UK, Sympatec and Vacuubrand.

Innovation will take centre stage, with numerous exhibitors using the show to launch new products and services to the laboratory market. For instance, Asynt will be showcasing its new high performance air condenser Asynt CondenSyn. It is designed specifically for synthetic chemistry experiments and requires no cooling water. The robust design uses a new borosilicate glass manufacturing technique, together with a proprietary multiple hyperbolic profile, ensuring optimum heat removal as vapours pass along its length.

Bosch Packaging Technology will be presenting its Manesty Xpress 100, which is a compact and mobile rotary tablet press, designed for research, development and small clinical batches. Mounted on castors, it permits mobility throughout different laboratory rooms with its ‘plug and play’ capability. The optional data acquisition software provides the opportunity to evaluate new tablet formulations, while its range of flexible turret options ensures the production of clinical trial batches.

The QCL Scientific stand will feature two new products. It will be presenting its new FoodLab Touch range of benchtop analysers, which provide a fast, simple and reliable analysis of multiple parameters in a variety of food and beverage products. It will also be showcasing its Zeutec SpectraAlyzer 2.0, which is its latest range of benchtop NIR analysers, delivering cost effective measurements of major quality parameters in food, beverage and agricultural products. The range is easy to operate and features a touch screen interface, which is compact and robust, so it can be used close to the production line, in environments with fluctuating temperatures, vibration and dust.

Bibby Scientific will be using the show to highlight its range of benchtop equipment and lab products. It will be showcasing its Stuart range of heating blocks, which have been developed to provide the best possible solution for heating round bottom flasks. These will run alongside its ranges of electromantles, conductivity meters and spectrophotometers.

Spectronic Camspec will be displaying its analytical instruments including its food texture analysers, UV/VIS spectrophotometers, FTIR spectrophotometers, mercury analysers, polarimeters, refractometers, flame photometers and its comprehensive range of electrochemical instrumentation for all laboratories.

Industry leaders, Anton Paar, will be using the show to demonstrate its Abbemat, which is a digital refractometer, allowing fast and non-destructive refractive index measurements. Also on display will be its automatic Cleveland Open Cup (COC), a solution for investigating oxidation stability - RapidOxy and its Modular Compact Rheometer Series.

Katie Crocombe, Lab Innovations Event Manager comments: 'We are pleased to have so many exhibitors already signed up for the 2015 show. With more than 100 suppliers getting behind the show, we can feel the momentum really starting to build, even though we still have five months to go. We have more innovation on the show floor than ever; I would say we are going to be bursting at the seams when it comes time to open the doors.'

More than just an exhibition, Lab Innovations 2015 will boast a packed conference programme, with two theatres providing valuable, educational and inspirational content. The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Campden BRI will once again both be running top flight conference programmes, with big name speakers to be unveiled closer to the show.
