Live Labs







During Laborama Expo 2018, visitors will find 2 installed Live Labs in the venue.  In these live labs, exhibitors will present their equipment during several live demonstration sessions.

Different than last year, each piece of equipment will have their seperate live demonstration. This allows the visitors to choose the demonstrations that they find interesting while the exhibitors can go more in depth during their demonstration.

Each exhibitor will give 1 demonstration in Dutch and 1 in French per day.

On-line µSPE Glyfosaat/AMPA


Automation of sample preparation is increasingly becoming an important spearhead for many laboratories.
It goes without saying that the elimination of labor-intensive sample preparation steps, such as for the (off-line) μSPE analysis of Glyphosate / AMPA, saves a lot of time.


Glyphosate is a chemical compound from the group of phosphates and the world's most used herbicide / pesticide. It was made and used for the first time in 1950. From that time on, it was introduced into our environment.


Glyphosate is mainly converted by microorganisms. The degradation proceeds via the compound Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), which therefore also has an analytical relevance.


Both are controlled in the environment and now also in food.


For this analysis LC-MS / MS in combination with derivatization of the analytes is the most used technique. The addition of online μSPE offers two major advantages:

  • The feasible detection and determination limits are improved with one enrichment step
  • Matrix component methods are removed and side effects such as ion suppression are reduced. This is a serious advantage especially for the LC-MS coupling.

The entire sample preparation process is automated with the on-line μSPE solution from Instrument Solutions. The derivatization is performed on Axel Semrau's Chronect modules, so that detection limits, reproducibility and also the time factor are optimized to a maximum.

Hitachi Table Top SEM (TM4000Plus)

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), which is used to evaluate the microscopic morphology of specimens, has become essential for research and development in various areas of research, including metals, minerals, ceramics, cements, glasses, plastics, rubbers, petroleum products, paints, life sciences, foodstuffs, semiconductors, electronic components, and biomedical sciences. SEM allows observations of the microstructure of specimen surfaces from low to high magnifications, and the depth of focus in SEM is larger than that in optical microscopy, which makes it easy to clarify the structure of an entire specimen with large surface roughness. An additional feature of SEM is X-ray analysis, which can be used to analyze the elemental composition in microscopic regions of specimens.


The TM4000Plus features innovation and cutting-edge technologies which redefine the capabilities of a tabletop microscope. This new generation of the long-standing Hitachi tabletop microscopes (TM) integrates ease of use, optimized imaging, and high-image quality, while maintaining the compact design of the well-established Hitachi TM Series products.

Experience the new dimension of tabletop microscopes with the Hitachi TM4000Plus.

CEM EDGE Energized Dispersive Guided Extraction


The Edge is the revolutionary extraction method that can be used in all sample preparations. Up to 30 grams of sample can be extracted in just 5 minutes of filtration and cooling included. This is 6 times faster than any high-pressure extractor. Regardless of the sample or the extraction technique used, thanks to the Q-CupTM technology in the Edge you get a clear solution, ready for analysis.


The Edge meets the requirements of USEPA 3545, can be used as an air monitor (extraction of XAD and PUF filters) and can be used in the pesticide residue analysis and fat analysis.



The Q-CupTM technology makes Energetic Dispersive Extraction easy and fast for different applications: semi-volatile organic components from soil samples, fat from food, phthalates from plastic, etc ....


The Q-CupTM technology provides automatic dispersive solid phase extraction (dSPE), and is also an alternative to QuEChERS in the extraction of pesticides. This new technology provides a more effective extraction and sample clean-up for different matrices.


The Q-CupTM holders are easy to assemble and are then placed in the autosampler of the Edge. After selecting the method and pressing start, Edge delivers a sample for analysis after 5 minutes.

Cora a transportable compact raman spectroscope


Cora is a transportable compact raman spectroscope that can be equipped with 1 or 2 semiconductor lasers and peltier cooled detectors. In addition to excitation wavelengths of 532 and 785 nm, we can also recommend the 1064 nm for samples that exhibit fluorescence easily. The instrument can be provided with a flexible fiber or inserts in which the powders, liquids, pills or surface plates are measured in the appliance. The robust unit is equipped with a battery and a built-in touchscreen, but the software can also be used on a PC. In addition to QC applications (mainly identification) we can also display the spectra and apply a first analysis to it.


Raman spectroscopy is ideal for chemical fingerprints and identification of organic substances, even by packaging and bottles, as in aqueous solutions. This non-destructive technique does not require steel preparation and can already be measured on a very small sample quantity. In addition to automatic identification and confirmation, information about structures, polymorphity, oxidations and phase transitions can also be found and reactions can be followed. Both entry control at chemical, pharmaceutical and food companies, and R & D research. Now the technique is also often used by customs, police and defense for the detection of drugs and explosives, and to check the purity of medicines.
