Industry News: World's Leading Trade Fair More International Than Ever

09 Nov 2009

Analytica 2010, the 22nd International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology, promises to be the most international analytica to date. As of late October 2009, more than 660 companies had registered for the fair, which is being held in Munich from March 23 – 26, 2010.

Exhibitors include leading German and international manufacturers such as Becton Dickinson, Eppendorf, Fisher Scientific, Merck, Gilson International, GE Healthcare, Miele, Millipore, Olympus Deutschland, Roche, Shimadzu Deutschland, Thermo Scientific, Varian, Waters and Waldner Laboreinrichtungen.

The number of exhibiting companies is steadily approaching the same level that it was at last year's fair. The number of international manufacturers is even higher than it was at this point in 2007, with a more than 13-percent increase in main exhibitors. So far, the share of registered exhibitors from countries other than Germany is just less than 33 percent. 

The “analytica Conference” and an extensive program of related events will promote additional dialog and the transfer of know-how within the industry. Among other topics, discussions and presentations will focus on industrial biotechnology and personalized medicine.
