Not only is Pittcon a place to meet potential customers, but it is a place to get new ideas from people who drop into the booth. It’s also a place to check up on your competitors!

Lives Focused on Instrumentation
Pittcon, the world’s largest annual conference and exposition on laboratory science, is organized by The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, a Pennsylvania not-for-profit educational corporation comprised of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP). Since 1990 the James L. Waters Symposium has been an annual component of the Pittcon technical program honoring pioneers of scientific instrumentation. CHF has been lucky to conduct oral history interviews with many people who discuss their experiences at Pittcon throughout the years. A number of these interviewees are members of the Pittcon Hall of Fame, past Waters Symposium honorees, or recipients of the Pittcon Heritage Award. Please also see the Mass Spectrometry Oral History Project, sponsored by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry.
