With analytica 2022, the international laboratory trade fair opened its doors in Munich from June 21 to 24. There, 891 exhibitors from 39 countries showed what the future of laboratory and analytical technology, life sciences and biotechnology could look like - the focus was once again on digitalization in the laboratory and new methods for combating pandemics. We have summarized here what the scientific exchange at analytica promoted, how our manufacturers BioSan, LAUDA and Asecos perceived the trade fair, which exhibitions were particularly exciting and what can be taken away overall.
Whether home office or leisure activities such as workouts, game nights or other hobbies – many things have changed and adapted so much within the past few months that they can now be practiced quite comfortably within one’s own four walls. The same is probably true for the meeting culture of those who now spend every day in the home office. While video calling used to be an exception for most of us, it’s now the rule. But what if we could make the meeting experience even more real in the future with the help of innovative virtual reality (VR) technologies? The first ready-to-use concepts already exist.
Design and functionality – these are certainly the aspects that are important in an electric car from a consumer perspective. Of course, battery performance is at least as important. The higher the range, the more convincing the vehicle. It is precisely this aspect that poses massive challenges for the industry. Scientists around the world are working flat out to make electric cars suitable for long-distance travel. The same applies to aircraft with electric propulsion. In this respect, the latest discovery in battery research is a real milestone in the further development of e-mobility.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly important in science, industry and business. From highly functional smartphones and innovative smarthome solutions to self-driving cars and autonomously flying drones, almost anything is possible today. Although AI technologies have long been suitable for everyday use, there is still “room for improvement” in this regard at the commercial level.
Spring is coming and with it the perfect time for a relaxed barbecue with delicious ribs, steaks, shashlik and co. To all those who want to give their grilled food a new (fiery) touch, we show today a marinade preparation of a very special kind. Big advantage: Additional dirty dishes or cutlery is reduced to a minimum with our preparation. See for yourself …
Change is on the horizon in the modern world of laboratory work. Even before the Corona virus literally shook the economy to its foundations, changes were evident. Completely new trends are crystallizing, not only with regard to the establishment of new occupational fields in the laboratory sector, but also and above all in terms of digitalization and sustainability. These developments relate to different areas and will lead to further innovations in the long term.
In the field of research, diagnostics and, not least, quality management in a wide range of industries, the so-called "smart lab" plays an important role. In the age of digitalization, laboratories face numerous obligations and challenges. The goal was and is to ensure higher automation as well as, beyond that, sustainably improved data integrity. We would like to illustrate here what the smart lab is already capable of achieving, what advantages result from it, and what requirements will have to be met in the coming years - this and more.
The fascinating world of microscopy is of fundamental importance in the most diverse fields of medicine, science and technology. It is constantly evolving and is currently shining with impressive innovations in the field of cancer research and in the fight against the corona virus, among other things. In addition, there are other exciting innovations from the "small" microscopy cosmos - and we will show you the most outstanding ones.
Robots have the potential to help us humans fight covid-19, for example in disinfecting medical facilities. This was recently demonstrated by a new disinfection robot from Denmark.
