Lab Innovations ready to go under the microscope

Lab Innovations increases exhibitors and global reach

An increase in exhibitors and international visitors will be on show at Lab Innovations next week, according to the show’s organisers.

The event, in its third year, focuses on laboratory technology and consumables, analytics and biotech equipment.

Exhibitors active in food safety and quality control include 3M, Anton Paar, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Bruker, Foss, KNF, Merck Millipore and Sartorius.

Platform to launch products

Katie Morhen, Lab Innovations event manager, told FoodQualityNews.com there had been a 14% increase in exhibitors including new companies such as Anton Paar, Mettler Toledo and Carl Stuart.

“When we launched Lab Innovations three years ago the aim was to create an event that would appeal to the entirety of the laboratory market,” she said.

“We’ve not previously had many international visitors to the show but this year I can confirm we’ve had visitors register from Europe plus a Chinese delegation.

“Over 45% of exhibitors use Lab Innovations as a platform to launch new products.  Frozen In Time, Boost Labcare, Retsch, Buchi and Anton Paar are some of the exhibitors launching new products.”

Morhen added that while visitors and exhibitors cover a range of sectors, food and drink is one of the largest visitor audiences for the trade show on 5-6 November.

Attendees include people from Sainsbury’s, United Biscuits, Britvic Soft Drinks, Lucozade Ribena Suntory, Nestle, Costa/Whitbread and PepsiCo.

Seminars and conference programme

Campden BRI, an event partner, will be running two events for food professionals at the NEC in Birmingham, UK.

It will host a two day paid for conference, discussing product fraud and STEC.

The conference will kick off with a seminar on the latest developments in food authentication, with respect to seafood, spirits, and plants.

Day one will feature case studies, including Professor Chris Elliot’s interim report into the government agencies’ handling of the horse meat scandal and setting up of a specialist food crime unit.

Day two will focus on ‘STEC and the enterics’, exploring how shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC) has become a key area of concern since the outbreak of E. coli O104:H4 food poisoning in 2011.

The Royal Society of Chemistry will also be hosting a full conference programme covering topics including Horizon 2020 funding, energy, environment, health and safety and training and legislation.
