Happy Birthday analytica!

In 1968, a manned space capsule circled the moon for the first time, Germany introduced value added tax, and young people all over the world revolted against the prevailing circumstances. The analytics sector was also on the verge of a new era: in April of 1968, the analytica celebrated its premiere in Munich, back then it was still called “ANALYTICA—International Trade Exhibition for biochemical analyses”.
