Impressions from the analytica 2016 in Munich


About 40 % of the 35.000 visitors came from abroad, mainly from Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Great Britain and USA. Especially the number of visitors coming from Great Britain, Iran, Thailand and Turkey showed significant growth. With these numbers the laboratory fair is the true number one for analytics and biotechnology.

Many exhibitors used the fair to introduce new products (EVISA reported about some of the products of interest for our user community):

Agilent showed its new 5110 Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometer. The new system builds on the company's breakthrough 5100 ICP-OES, which captures axial and radial views of plasma in a single measurement, enabling laboratories to use half as much argon in the process, saving both time and money. The new system is also a dual-view system.

Analytik Jena:
AJ introduced the new series contrAA® 800 of High Resolution Continuum Source Atomic Absorption Spectrometers. The most obvious feature of the new instruments is its space-saving design. Both typical AAS technologies are implemented in one sample compartment via an automatic atomizer switching. The redesigned high-performance optical system provides improved stability and lowest noise, resulting in market-leading detection limits and superior accuracy. A new lamp design further reduces consumables costs.

Bruker introduced the new S4 TStar™ total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) spectrometer enabling ultra-trace elemental analysis in a range of applications, including pharma, food and environmental testing.  The S4 TStar features up to 3 different excitation modes and a high performance, large area XFlash® silicon drift detector (SDD) to ensure extremely low limits of detection for all elements from sodium to uranium.

Shimadzu showed its new ICPMS-2030 Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer. Featuring unique analysis assistant functions and incorporating proprietary cost-reducing capabilities, the ICPMS-2030 provides efficient, sensitive trace element analysis for environmental testing, food and agriculture studies, and pharmaceutical work.

Thermo Scientific:
Thermo Scientific displayed the new iCAP-RQ ICP-MS spectrometer, which is a robust instrument designed for maximum uptime and ease of use. It features intelligent workflows, universal interference removal and automated sample handling accessories, all within a small footprint that makes it ideal for space-restricted laboratories that still require superior performance. The instrument can perform 24/7 unattended sample analysis to maximize sample throughput and overall productivity in the laboratory.

Analytica Conference
Scientific highlight of the analytica was its three-days conference. More than 1800 participants (12 % more than during the conference in 2014) were following the 5-stream program with about 150 speakers.
