IMSC

imscThe 18th International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC 2009) takes place in Bremen, Germany, between 30 August and 4 September. We are pleased to bring you regular updates from the conference and exhibition.

Keep checking here for the latest news!

Our guest video blogger is Giles Edwards. Giles describes himself as a mass spectrometer enthusiast. As well as his job at Waters as a Technical Support Specialist, he runs a charity (Recycling Organisation for Research Opportunities) that collects redundant analytical instrumentation, repairs it and then gives it to academic institutions that do not possess sophisticated analytical instrumentation.

Not news of the conference, but a highly relevant announcement today. Life Technologies Corporation has signed a definitive agreement to sell its stake in its mass spectrometry business, operated as a joint venture, to Danaher Corporation for $450 million in cash. Danaher has also signed an agreement to acquire Life Technologies’ joint venture partner in the mass spectrometry business, MDS Analytical Technologies, a division of MDS Inc. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Record attendance at Bremen

Whilst there are still people registering, conference chairman Jürgen Grotemeyer was able to confirm yesterday that around 2300 delegates were registered for IMSC. This is a significant increase on the numbers from the 16th IMSC (Prague), and can be seen in the busy and vibrant atmosphere at the conference.
 

The mass spec world gathers

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 

Sunday afternoon and much of the mass spectrometry world is on its way to or has arrived in Bremen for IMSC 2009. Looks like there'll be over 2000 delegates.

The exhibition is in the usual state of choas to be expected at this stage. A few stands smugly finished, others undergoing work of a more of less frantic nature and others where anybody is yet to arrive. However, by some superhuman effort, tomorrow the mess will be tidied away, surfaces and exhibitors polished and we'll be ready for action.

Registration seems very well organised, with staff resplendent in lime green: they're eay to spot; and very helpful.

The conference kicks off shortly with tutorial lectures by Michael Karas and Richard O'Hair, and the first plenary by Gerard Meijer followed by the mixer.
