Pittcon to Highlight Ultra High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) For Annual Symposium
The 30th annual symposium highlights the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of UHPLC techniques and instrumentation
Pittsburgh, PA – January 22, 2019 – The Pittcon Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the details of the 30th James L. Waters Symposium: Ultra High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC).
The objective of the 30th annual Waters symposium is to recognize researchers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early, and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and marketing organizations.
Dr. Annette Wilson, organizer of the annual symposium commented, “In the past 20 years, liquid chromatography has been improved to provide better and faster separations than ever before with the evolution of UHPLC. The experts in this symposium will describe the basis for, and the realization of better particles plus the advances in instrumentation to make UHPLC possible.”
Liquid chromatography is a separation technique used in practically every application that involves identification of components found in complex mixtures that everyone comes across in everyday life. These include biomedical applications to identify potential biomarkers of disease, pharmaceutical applications to identify active components of drugs and/or impurities in formulations, global agri-food and food analysis in general to determine minimum quality requirements of food products and ingredients found on food labels everyone reads, environmental analysis of pollutants in our waterways to name a few.
We are extremely pleased to welcome the following innovators to Pittcon 2019.
This session will take place during Pittcon on Monday, March 18, 1:30 pm. Speaker abstracts and bios can be found at pittcon.org.
About the James L. Waters Annual Symposium
The James L. Waters Annual Symposium is a unique component of the Pittcon Technical Program. Mr. Waters, founder of Waters Associates, Inc. and president of Waters Business Systems, Inc. proposed in 1989 that the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) offer an annual symposium exploring the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of established and major significance. The objective of the symposium is to recognize researchers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early, and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and marketing organizations.
Pittcon® is a registered trademark of The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, a Pennsylvania non-profit organization. Co-sponsored by the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh, Pittcon is the premier annual conference and exposition on laboratory science.
Proceeds from Pittcon fund science education and outreach at all levels, kindergarten through adult. Pittcon donates more than a million dollars a year to provide financial and administrative support for various science outreach activities including science equipment grants, research grants, scholarships and internships for students, awards to teachers and professors, and grants to public science centers, libraries and museums.
