- Experience Laboratory 4.0 live in the special show Digital Transformation
- analytica conference and forums: First-hand trends and tips
- COVID expert panels and Finance Days with theme day Personalized Medicine
Finally live again in Munich: When analytica, the world’s leading trade fair for laboratory technology, analytics and biotechnology, from 21st to 24th June opens its doors, around 900 exhibitors will present their novelties. The industry is particularly looking forward to the personal dialogue. There is ample opportunity to do so at the exhibition stands, but also at the analytica conference, in the forums and during the many other accompanying events. “Nothing can be done about a real meeting,” emphasizes Armin Wittmann, project manager analytica at Messe München. The attractive supporting program of analytica makes the laboratory world of tomorrow tangible and facilitates the exchange of know-how, experiences and ideas.

analytica conference: Science meets industry
The analytica conference, the scientific highlight of analytica, takes place on the first three days of the fair at the ICM in the immediate vicinity of the exhibition halls. Whether nanoplastics, cancer diagnostics or antibiotic-resistant germs in the water cycle: In almost 200 lectures and a poster show, renowned scientists from all over the world discuss what modern analytics does today, where it is still reaching its limits and how it will overcome it in the future. The multifaceted program was compiled by the Society of German Chemists (GDCh), the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) and the German United Society for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (DGKL).
Special Show and Forum Digital Transformation: Laboratory 4.0 in Action
The megatrend of digitization runs as a common thread through the program of the analytica conference and also through the exhibition halls. In the special show Digital Transformation in Hall B2, visitors experience automated workflows, networked devices and robots in action. Next door in the forum of the same name, Agilent, Merck, Mettler Toledo, Thermo Fisher Scientific and many other companies explain their concepts for Laboratory 4.0 in half-hour lectures. The industry association SPECTARIS gives an overview of the current status of a uniform interface OPC-UA at German manufacturers.
analytica forums: COVID expert panels, finance days and more
The Forum Biotech (Hall A3), the Forum Occupational Safety and Safety at Work and the analytica Forum (both Hall B1) also invite you to practical lectures and panel discussions. Highlights in the analytica Forum include the expert panels on COVID research on the 22nd and 23rd. June, among others with Prof. Dr. Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit from the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg and Prof. Dr. Helga Rübsamen-Schaeff, Leopoldina member and founder and supervisory board member of the biopharmaceutical company AiCuris. The exact dates will be communicated shortly on the analytica website.
The German biotech industry has proven to be a problem solver during the pandemic and has raised more capital than ever before in the past two years. The Finance Days on the 23rd and 24th June at the Forum Biotech in Hall A3, financing trends in the life science sector will address and answer questions about IPOs and global markets. With the theme day Personalized Medicine on the 24th In June, analytica will also focus on a particularly promising area. Representatives of associations, clusters and companies in the healthcare industry will discuss the potential of individualized therapies from different perspectives.
Occupational safety and safety at work
Safety in the laboratory comes first in daily work. The Occupational Safety and Health Forum in Hall B2 is specifically dedicated to this topic. In daily experimental lectures, the company asecos will again demonstrate live which accidents can happen if hazardous substances are not properly stored in the laboratory. In addition, lectures on lithium-ion batteries and accumulators take place, which are also increasingly finding their way into laboratories and whose risk potential is often underestimated in the event of incorrect handling. Further lectures by companies such as Erlab, Bernd Kraft and a1-environsciences complete the program.
In addition: Further training and study information day
If you want to use analytica as a career booster, you can combine trade fair visit and further training. The training and consulting company Dr. Klinkner & Partner offers all-day seminars at analytica on selected topics from laboratory IT to the validation of analytical methods. And last but not least, analytica, together with the scientific society GDCh and VBio, promotes young talent for the industry. As usual, on the last day of the fair, the 24th June, the popular study information day will take place again. Here, high school graduates inform themselves about subjects and occupational fields in chemistry, biotechnology and food chemistry.
Three trade fairs, one ticket
Parallel to analytica, ceramitec, the leading international trade fair for the ceramics industry, and automatica, the leading international trade fair for intelligent automation and robotics, will take place at the Munich exhibition center. Access to both trade fairs is free of charge for analytica visitors.
