Latest lab technology and current industry trends at the world's leading trade fair

Immerse yourself in the world of lab technology and see for yourself future-proof solutions for the laboratory at analytica 2024. In Munich, you will find the latest developments in the laboratory world all in one place.

The importance of lab technology

Lab technology is the basis for working effectively in the laboratory. Efficient laboratory work is only possible in a smooth-functioning laboratory setting. Lab furniture such as laboratory and safety cabinets, lab chairs, laboratory benches with special chemical-resistant surfaces and special weighing tables, energy-efficient fume hoods, media, supply and disposal systems, temperature control, cooling and freezing systems as well as laboratory dishwashers and safety equipment form the foundation of laboratory work.

When applying for funding, a distinction is made between fixed and mobile lab technology. Fixed lab technology includes all systems that are firmly integrated into the building structure, such as the media supply. Mobile laboratory equipment and modular laboratory units can be flexibly adapted to different laboratory requirements.

Get an idea of where the smart lab is headed at the world's leading trade show. Discover the latest smart lab technology and the key trends in the lab technology industry at analytica in Munich.

Current trends in the laboratory

In all modern-day laboratories, whether dealing with research and development or quality control, the life sciences or food and environmental analysis, as well as in medical laboratories, the focus is on greater efficiency, flexibility, minimizing costs, and saving time. At the same time, laboratory personnel must contend with increasingly tough demands. Clearly, then, state-of-the-art and functional laboratory equipment is vitally important.

With resource conservation and climate neutrality being an imperative, energy-saving measures and more environmentally friendly processes are becoming increasingly important. The industry is rising to this challenge with a constant stream of new features and technologies. Scarcity of resources and cost pressures are also a major driver behind the development of alternative raw materials and gases. The helium problem, for instance, has resulted in new detection techniques and alternative helium gas substitutes in analysis.

At analytica 2024, find out how the latest lab technology and specific solutions offer a response to the questions of our time. In Munich, renowned experts will be explaining to the trade community how compliant with laws and directives future-proof lab technology must be and highlighting the legal requirements that manufacturers must now fulfill. Prime examples of this right now are cannabis analysis and cannabis/cannabidiol (CBD) quality control.

Automated lab technology and process optimization

The supreme simplicity of automated laboratory instruments supports laboratory staff, delivering reliable results of a consistently high quality. Automating and monitoring individual process steps, optimizing workflows, and automated evaluation procedures significantly speed up laboratory processes and improve the accuracy of measurement results, freeing up time and allowing laboratory staff to concentrate more on their actual measuring tasks. The quality of laboratory work improves, productivity is enhanced and operating costs are kept to a minimum.

Purchasing decisions are motivated not just by quality and safety, but also user convenience, functionality, ergonomics and design.
