Lab Innovations will be the launchpad for several new products when it is held at Birmingham’s NEC on 30 and 31 October.
Many of the shows’ 160+ exhibitors will be launching or highlighting their very latest laboratory innovations, services, and solutions – from general lab equipment and informatics, to larger-scale industrial and cleanroom technology.
The Lab Connect meeting planner is designed to help visitors find the companies and products there are looking for and make the most of their time at the show. As well as visiting the exhibitors’ stands, visitors can find out more about the latest products and services in the Live Lab theatre, at the SelectScience ‘Seals of Quality’ awards, and through the ‘Innovation Gallery’, sponsored by Innovation DB.
Products highlighted in the Innovation Gallery have been selected for their ability to enable scientists to perform their work more effectively and will be showcased on the show’s ‘Innovation Trail’ tours. These include:
SPECTRO’s SPECTROGREEN inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES) with new revolutionary Dual Side-On Interface (DSOI) technology;
Shimadzu’s Nexera UHPLC with A.I. that detects and resolves issues automatically to simplify lab management and increase throughput;
SCP Sciences’ NovaWAVE SA standalone microwave digestion tunnel system for improving productivity through automation;
A&D Instruments’ Apollo GF-A/GX-K series multi-functional precision balances with impact shock detection;
BRAND’s HandyStep touch, repetitive pipette with touchscreen operation;
Eppendorf’s Conical Tubes 25mL that fills the gap between the volumes of traditional conical tubes for cell biology applications;
Appleton Woods BioEcho EchoLUTION cell culture DNA Kit with proprietary single-step technology.
SelectScience will host its second Annual Awards, dedicated to celebrating its Seals of Quality programme, which helps scientists to quickly identify the products that are most highly rated by their peers. This year’s awards presentations will take place in the Live Lab zone on Wednesday, October 30, 3:30-4:30pm. Events in The Live Lab will include product demonstrations on SAAS LIMS, by Eusoft, Micro GC Fusion, by Inficon, and on UHPLC with Artificial Intelligence, by Shimadzu.
New products supporting routine laboratory functions will include Radwag’s Synergy Lab line of microbalances and analytical balances, Peak Scientific’s Genius XE 35 nitrogen generator, pipettes and shakers from IKA and remote-controlled MasterflexLive Peristaltic Pumps from Cole-Parmer. Analytical technologies will also feature including Mitsubishi moisture meters, NIC mercury analysers from A1-envirosciences and Novacyt’s PathFlow rapid infectious disease testing portfolio.
In line with the theme of ‘sustainability’, STARLAB’s GuardOne workstation, LTE-Scientific’s eco-drying glassware cabinet, and biological safety cabinets from Esco and Haier Biomedical will be amongst the energy-efficient products on show. SLS will be also be introducing the iWash cell counter slide washer, which can reduce plastic waste by cleaning slides for re-use (in under 30 seconds), exclusively to the UK.
Josh Chapman, Scientific Laboratory Supplies, explained why the company is proud to be Lab Innovations’ Official Distribution Partner again. “Every year Lab Innovations has grown, with more products and people to see than ever before. In fact, we are building on the great success of previous years and are increasing the size of our SLS Pavilion to include 16 ‘pods’ showcasing some of our key supply partners. This gives visitors the chance to see even more new technologies and discuss their lab requirements, whilst interacting with like-minded people.”
Affirming why she visits Lab Innovations, Natalie Cole, Chemist, Biolab Medical Unit, added: “It’s fantastic seeing all the different equipment that’s now available, as well as learning things about lab products that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. I love coming to this great, all-round event and seeing all the new innovations I would really like to have!”
