Pittcon, the world’s largest annual conference and exposition for laboratory science, is the premier venue for innovations, and the Pittcon Editors’ Awards are all about rewarding those types of advances.

For a product to be considered for this prestigious award, the requirements are that it is being displayed for the first time at a Pittcon exposition and it must be a functioning instrument. Typically, winning products feature innovations in technology or industrial design or may enable new
analytical applications.

This year, the dynamic exposition floor offered instruments and services from 935 exhibiting companies representing more than 32 countries. From a display of thousands of products, attending media representatives identified 19 different instruments and submitted their votes to a dedicated core of journalists who then selected winners for Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
