3 Jun 2024

The world’s most innovative and effective technologies advancing Analytical Science have been recognized in the 2024 Scientists’ Choice Awards®.
Each year, we invite scientists from around the globe to participate by nominating, reviewing, and voting for the lab products that have had the greatest impact on their work. Read on to reveal your chosen winners.

Best New Analytical Science Product of 2023

The award for the Best New Analytical Science Product of 2023 goes to the 6495D triple quadrupole LC/MS (LC/TQ) by Agilent Technologies.
The 6495D triple quadrupole LC/MS system is an ultrahigh-performance system built for research and testing labs investigating large batches of samples. Equipped with iFunnel technology, this LC/MS/MS achieves ppq-level detection limits for the most challenging analytes in heavy matrix, while providing high precision at sub-millisecond dwell times.

Analytical Science Webinar of the Year

This year’s Webinar of the Year is awarded to 'The basic physics of spectroscopy: Light-matter interaction for fun and profit' by Andor Technology. Adam Wise, an applications specialist from Andor, examines core concepts essential to understanding common optical spectroscopy methods. He explains how light – an electromagnetic wave – passes through, bounces off, gets absorbed by, and is made by, atoms, molecules and solids.

Analytical Science Editorial Article of the Year

The winning article is ‘New expert service helps to optimize lateral flow assays for success’ and features technology from Merck. The article explores Merck’s new Assay Development Services, designed to help developers optimize their lateral flow assays (LFAs), overcome roadblocks, and expedite time to market.

Analytical Science Application eBook of the Year

The Application eBook of the Year Award goes to 'Beyond the naked eye: Characterizing nanomaterials with precision' by ZEISS . This eBook presents some of the most advanced material characterization technologies on the market. It illustrates how to investigate the microscopic world using 3D X-ray imaging, and how to fully characterize powders. The guide also highlights the future of high-throughput imaging using focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) systems.

Analytical Science Email of the Year

The winner in the Email of the Year category goes to ‘Solutions for Pharma Compliant Weighing’ from Sartorius Group. The winning email features the Cubis®️ II Balances which offer the highest level of precision and fast stabilization time with each measurement in everyday conditions.

Analytical Science Innovative Content of the Year

The winner in the Innovative Content category goes to 'A complete guide to PFAS analysis’, from Waters. Explore comprehensive analytical solutions and methods that deliver high-quality ultra-trace quantification and provide confidence in PFAS data so that it can easily meet regulatory requirements today and in the future.
