The trade show’s technical program offers more than 1,100 sessions led by top scientists and research pioneers on a broad range of topics including nanotechnology and materials science, industry and manufacturing, and energy and environmental. This year’s Wallace H. Coulter lecture on March 19 will feature a lecture titled, “Venturing Into Analytical Chemistry Using Photonic Crystals.”

The Pittcon Conference and Exposition provides an opportunity for visitors to meet exhibitors such as Backer Hotwatt, with representatives available at booth #2510 to speak with people curious about heating solutions—standard and custom—for their laboratory and medical biotechnical needs.

Backer Hotwatt is a major supplier for several processes used within laboratory and science project sectors. Its heating elements are used in blood, urine, and tissue analysis, ovens, incubators, water baths, hot plates, test tube heating, and cryogenics in labs, schools, and scientific equipment across the nation. Backer Hotwatt also has dry heat, disinfecting, and cleansing components that are used in the sanitization and sterilization of equipment and tools. As examples, cartridge heaters are used in ventilators and X-ray processing equipment. Plastic extruders and molders use cartridge, tubular, and flexible heaters to make medical-grade tubing, packaging, and many other components for the medical device and equipment industries.
