Analytics – setting the pace for research in chemistry

Save the date: Next analytica in Munich from June 21 to 24, 2022

Please note: The information on this page will be updated soon.

High performance and process optimization determine chemical and pharmaceutical research. The consumption of resources should be low and valuable working time should be saved. Targets requiring absolutely safe and reliable research results. But they are only as good as the available analytics. Get an overview of the state of affairs at the world’s leading trade fair in Munich.


Innovations from big industry players and startups

You will be able to scrutinize important interdisciplinary technologies for the industry at analytica, the world’s leading trade fair, in Munich – along the complete supply chain of analytics, because this is the wide range covered by the exhibiting companies.

Analysis results define the quality of the products and, thus, their business success in the chemical industry. From sample preparation to high end analytics and day-to-day laboratory routine – high-performance analysis methods set the standard. Sample preparation techniques, element analytics, electrophoresis, thin-layer techniques, gas and liquid chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) as well as spectrometric methods allow even lower detection limits and new detection possibilities. Digitalized and automatic analysis solutions already provide essential impulses. Therefore, appropriate, safe and cost-efficient analytics is decisive in its highly diversified application in the chemical industry.

Progress in instrument analytics

The latest developments in instrument analytics are pushing chemical knowhow and standards, such as GMP, GLP, REACH as well FDA, in the industrial lab – see for yourself at analytica.

Novel technologies are mainly important for chemical and pharmaceutical research and quality control. But the success in material research would not be possible without modern instrument analytics as well. The success in the synthesis of new active substances is credited to next generation technologies, as is the development of functional and intelligent materials. Plastics are of special significance for industrial applications. They can be applied nearly everywhere.

Growing significance of chemical research

There is a high demand for research and development, which means that the requirements to analytics are also increasing. Innovative synthesis and analysis methods, as they are exhibited at analytica, the world’s leading trade fair, set the pace for research into and tests for, new active substances, novel plastics and other materials. This gives chemical research and its portfolio decisive significance for other industries. The food and agriculture industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the health system, consumer goods and cosmetics or packaging technologies, the automotive industry and electromobility, they all have to rely on chemical products and methods. Chemical research with its potential is an important factor for nearly all sectors of the economy.
