Pittcon Announces Technical Program for 2016
Hot topics include food safety, homeland security and bioanalytical science
Pittsburgh, PA – November 30, 2015 – Pittcon is pleased to announce the 2016 Technical Program that includes over 2,000 technical presentations offered in symposia, oral sessions, workshops, awards, and posters. The core of the Technical Program, analytical chemistry and applied spectroscopy, covers a wide range of applications such as, but not limited to, biotechnology, biomedical, drug discovery, environmental, food science, fuels/energy, genomics, lab management, life science, materials science, nanotechnology, polymers/plastics, proteomics and water/wastewater. The Technical Program, begins on Sunday, March 6 and runs through Thursday, March 10, 2016.
A few of the symposia highlights of the Technical Program include:
- “Detection of Hepatitis B Virus DNA with a Paper Electrochemical Sensor”, will be presented by Richard Crooks, University of Texas at Austin, March 9, 2:10 p.m.
- Norm Dovichi from the University of Notre Dame will present “Bottom-up Proteomics of E.coli Using Dynamic pH Junction Preconcentration and CZE-ESI-MS/MS”, on March 6, 1:35 p.m.
- Milton Lee, Brigham Young University, will discuss capillary column technology for chromatography including speculation of emerging opportunities for the future in the session, “Columns in Small-Scale Chromatography”, March 7, 1:40 p.m.
We will once again be co-programming with the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry with eight symposia on analytical methods and advancements in areas such as metabolics, neurochemistry, chemometrics, nuclear safeguards, ion mobility mass spectrometry and bioanalysis.They will also have a poster session on Sunday evening, March 6.
Other co-programming partners include:
