April 2008

Analytica 2008, Munich, Germany

From 1–4 April 2008, Munich will once again be the stage for Analytica 2008 — a leading trade fair offering marketable solutions in analytics, laboratory technology, biotechnology and the life sciences.

Since 1968 Analytica has been held every two years and has become an established international meeting point for leaders in the laboratory industry. It is also recognised for being a communication and business event for the international community, offering the presentation of innovative products and services and of the reproduction of entire value-added chains in industrial and research laboratory applications.

Analytica 2008, which will be held at Fairground, Munich, will feature international events to help build business relationships on a global scale. These will include the Analytica Forum, which is a platform for the exchange of information and transfer of knowledge, and the European international research community summit.
