Ahead of Pittcon 2015 in New Orleans, Editor-in-Chief Michelle Taylor spoke with experts from exhibiting companies to get their take on what to expect at both this year’s Pittcon as well as future Pittcons.
What technologies and trends do you expect to see at Pittcon 2015?
“I believe that the world of analytical (and medical) science is on a journey from analysis in the laboratory to measurement at the point of sample - and I hope that this year’s Pittcon will reflect that trend.” - Stephen Tomisich, Director and CEO, Trajan Scientific and Medical
What technologies and trends do you expect to see beyond 2015?
“Looking ahead, I expect to see more companies presenting portable instruments and the easy-to-use computing and consumable formats that this analytical shift demands.” - Stephen Tomisich, Director and CEO, Trajan Scientific and Medical
Taylor also asked our Q&A interview subjects to sum up the future of the lab industry in a few words.
Here's what they said:
“Powerful, affordable, portable analysis” - Stephen Tomisich
Trajan Scientific and Medical’s hemaPEN® has been independently evaluated and the results of the study published in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s journal Analyst - selected for the cover of issue 17. hemaPEN demonstrated significant advantages for blood sampling to support better healthcare decision making.
Trajan Scientific and Medical has listed its hemaPEN® blood microsampling device with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as Class I for therapeutic and in vitro diagnostic use. This follows the hemaPEN’s recent registration in May for supply in the EU and UK as a General IVD; as well as inclusion in the TGA’s ARTG (Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods) in February as a Class I IVD.
