The international trade fair for the global analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology industry takes place in Munich for the 24th time from April 1 – 4, 2013, and companies are coming. So far, 714 exhibitors have registered for analytica (compared to 664 exhibitors in 2011). That is an increase of 7.5 percent.
Laboratory-equipment suppliers Hirschmann, Köttermann and Waldner are just some of the industry's key players that will be at the fair next April. Susanne Grödl, Exhibition Director of analytica, is familiar with the fair's strengths: "The presence of major manufacturers and suppliers of laboratory equipment alone proves that analytica is number one in the industry." Other companies that have registered to date include Analytik Jena, Becton Dickinson, Eppendorf, Fisher Scientific, GE Healthcare, Merck Millipore, Miele, Olympus Deutschland, Shimadzu Deutschland, Sigma and Waters. Countries planning large jointexhibition stands currently include China, France, Great Britain and Spain.
