International trade fair for instrumental analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology, Analytica, opens its gates in Munich, Germany for the 22nd time. From 23–26 March 2010, the Bavarian capital will be the heart of the industry. Since 1968, the event has been held every two years and has become an established international meeting point for leaders in the laboratory industry. It features an exhibition, a conference and an extensive programme of related events that allow key players to showcase their new products, start ups to present their innovations and scientists to discuss future trends.

As always, visitors can expect a number of new developments in the chromatography sector in 2010. About 148 chromatography manufacturers were represented at Analytica in 2008, and the fair's organizers expect approximately the same number of participants this year. All the key industry players will be present to showcase their latest product developments.

Both Analytica forums this year will focus on the practical transfer of expertise to industry users. They feature everything from presentations on the latest innovations and business-related topics to an overview of future and growth markets, making them an attractive part of this year's programme.

The Laboratory & Analytics Forum covers the latest technological developments in the sectors that use analysis and laboratory technology and describes topics that will become important in the future in rapidly growing markets. The forum features presentations for everyday users of analysis technology in the laboratory. It is also an opportunity for exhibitors to present their latest solutions. Topics in 2010 include food and environmental analysis, forensics, general business topics relating to laboratories, international growth markets and the laboratory markets of the future, as well as presentations on the latest innovations in the sector for laboratory technology by companies that are active in this area.

The Biotech Forum focuses on business- and application-related topics in the biotech and life science sectors and will address everyday users of analysis technology in the laboratory. Topics include legal aspects of biotechnology, white biotechnology, biomaterials and new sources of energy from biotechnology, outlook presentations on the rapidly growing biotechnology sector and presentations of the latest life-science innovations from start-ups and manufacturers.

The Chromatography Forum is a platform in its own right. It allows exhibitors to present their latest products and to discuss modern analysis techniques in panel discussions. The conference on Wednesday will focus on chromatography and will feature a series of lectures on "High Performance Separation and Detection Platforms for Life Sciences" in the morning and an afternoon session on "Chromatography in Trace Analysis: Possibilities and Challenges".

This year will also feature a Job Day. For an entire day, the fair will be a career springboard for scientists in the job market who can meet potential employers at the fair. The day is a popular attraction for both applicants and companies with openings. Many companies take advantage of the opportunity to meet with qualified young professionals. The promising range of events will be rounded off by round table discussions and live interviews.
