Sun, Shows & Photos

April proved a busy month for shows. 

Our first stop for the month was the historical city of Krakow for the 2nd European Conference on Pharmaceutics. Here we showcased two of our new systems, the DSC450 and Freeze Drying Vial System (FDVS), which drew plenty of interest amongst the pharma crowd. It was a great show which further illustrated the importance of sample characterisation within pharmaceutical research and Linkam’s role within it. 
 

Krakow is the second largest city in Poland and one of the oldest, dating back to the 7th Century.

The next stop was the beautiful port city of Bordeaux, which was home for this year’s Focus on Microscopy conference. We took along our cryo-CLEM stage, CMS196M, which fit in well with the show’s theme of new techniques in electron and fluorescent microscopy. 

The evenings saw us take the tram into central Bordeaux where we were lucky enough to try the renowned Bordeaux wine and French cuisine.

Our last stop in April was the University of Lincoln, where this year’s Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry meeting was held. TAC focused on the uses of differential scanning colorimetry across a wide variety of different applications, and as such was the ideal venue to showcase the new DSC450.

We’ll be continuing our European travels later this month, stopping first in Stockholm for the 6th FIP Pharmaceutical Sciences World Congress 2017, followed shortly by Budapest for the 1st Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry Conference. We look forward to seeing you there!
