The full force of industry serving the scientific community was evident at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia the week of March 18, where more than 1,000 exhibitors were on the premises displaying the many products and services industrial, academic and government labs employ to deliver the promise and potential of their work. Without a doubt, the exposition serves to highlight the latest innovations across a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from analytical chemistry, drug discovery, nanotechnology, life sciences, environmental science and more.
Many exhibitors reserve Pittcon to introduce new offerings and innovations in the process analytical space serving pharma, and the 2013 conference was no different with developments in informatics and process analytical technologies taking center stage for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing’s readers.
In pursuit of efficiencies across commercial laboratory environments, informatics and related information, technologies are emerging to bridge gaps and create synergies that help researchers and clinicians stick to their core competencies while supporting the management and administration of laboratory data as well as other aspects of lab operations to meet research and development and similar business and competitive imperatives.
