Pittcon will be back to its full glory for Atlanta 2022, but just what makes this conference so special?

In our latest feature, we spoke to key members of Pittcon’s organizing committee to find out more about its philanthropic mission - over 90 percent of net profit goes to funding education and outreach, didn't you know? Below, we take a deep dive into just what makes the Pittsburgh Conference so appealing, the lessons learned along the way and the future of the event. You can also read team TAS’ joint editorial for September, and learn about the science behind (potentially) the oldest stained glass window in the world. Enjoy! Lauren Robertson, Deputy Editor.

Weekly Spotlight

Beckman Coulter Life Sciences’ QC instruments were designed for bio/pharmaceutical manufacturing—from cleanroom production through final product testing and ALCOA-compliant data management for streamlined reporting and audits.

Let us help you automate processes and reduce the potential for human errors by eliminating pass/fail calculations, manual data entry and paper records.
