Laborama Expo 2018 will host 2 different routes: one that focusses on Water and one that targets Life Sciences. 

What are these Routes?

The 2 routes take the visitors along the booths of specialised exhibitors. The Water Route contains companies with products or services for water research or treatment. The Life Science Route focusses on companies who present their newest measuring methods and analyses techniques for everything pertaining to the life sciences.

How does it work?

Visitors receive upon entry of Laborama Expo a borchure with information about the Life Science Route. By scanning a QR code, they can access an online survey. The answers to these questions can be found on the booths of participating exhibitors. Participants can claim their reward at the end of the route at the Laborama booth (Z1) in hall 1.

Life Science Route

iTherm Trustsens – the first self-calibrating temperature sensor


Critical processes in the pharmaceutical and biosciences industries often require frequent calibration of temperature instrumentation to prove that it is still within specifications. This is done by taking the sensor out of the process.

The magnetic properties of the built-in ceramic reference system of the Trustsens temperature probe will change each time its Curie-temperature is reached. This will generate an electronic signal that will automatically calibrate the sensor on a fixed point without the need of taking it out of the process.

Automating the (Biological) sample dry down bottle-neck 

Various biological samples types contain proteins that complicate downstream analysis if not effectively removed. Biological samples contain proteins, which can disturb LC-systems, resulting in poor peak shapes. When de-proteination of samples is needed, the 96 well Proteine precipitation plate gives a simple way of working, including the removal of unwanted phospholipids.
But supernatant must be removed. A 96 well plate is an efficient way of doing this and lend themselves for automation. Solvents issue: Acetonitrile or methanol may not be the best solvents for Chromatography: the solution must be dried and re-suspended which become a automation bottle-neck. The Ultravap-Mistral and -Levante fully Robot automating the bottle-neck of solvent evaporation.

Nucleic acids are biological molecules essential for life. They allow organisms to transfer genetic information from one generation to the next.  DNA does exist as a double helix structure.

DNA melting is the process by which double helix unwinds and separates into single-stranded strands.

De temperature at which the half of the DNA exists as single strands is called the melting point (Tm).

This temperature can be used to classify bacteria, detect sequence differences,
detection of gene mutations …


One of the most commonly used and simplest techniques for the DNA melting point determination is spectroscopic determination by UV absorption.
