Dickson at Pittcon 2017: Booth 5245

Updated on 3/8/2017 at 8:59 AM

We've just started day number three and things are continuing to move right along. We're hopeful that some of you had as good of an experience on day two as we did. We had an opportunity appear at our booth that was so perfect, we thought it was staged. Here's a snippet of that conversation.

"I'm looking for something that uploads my temperature and humidity data someplace where I can access it from anywhere at anytime. My team has also become upset at the calibration process because they have to send their devices off to be re-calibrated and then they don't have anything to track and record what's going on during their experiments. Personally, I'd really like to be alerted if any of our loggers are disconnected because of cleaning and are never set up again. Do you know of anything like that?"

Our response?

"Why yes. That is exactly what we do and exactly why we are here."

If you're looking to address any problems that are similar to the above example we saw yesterday, make sure to stop by and visit us today. You can also meet with one of our project managers to talk about the system and, depending on his availability today, with our manager of Mapping and Validation Services.

We'll look forward to talking with many of you soon and wish you all a wonderful Wednesday at Pittcon!

The day has arrived and Pittcon is officially underway. Last year we were able to spend the week at the show in Atlanta. This week, it's returned to Chicago, our own personal stomping ground, the home of Italian sausage, deep dish pizza, da Super Fans, and baseball's world champions.

Follow us on Twitter for images and updates on the show (@DicksonData) and check back often for updates on the things we see and hear on the showroom floor.

Also, our business development team is manning the booth today, so stop by if you have any questions related to any of your temperature and humidity monitoring needs. Hope to visit with you all soon!

Curiosity is one of the most interesting aspects of life. The desire to know or learn can give life meaning. It’s about the desire to grow and to better one’s self and in some cases humanity as a whole. Few places is that more on display than at Pittcon, the world’s largest conference and expo on the field of laboratory science.

The show covers a variety of topics including subjects like biomedical and electrochemistry. Its audience is made up of all laboratory scientists, and provides value to anyone who identifies, quantifies, analyzes or tests the chemical or biological properties of compounds or molecules, or who manages these laboratory scientists. While the convention was initially rooted in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy, Pittcon has now evolved to include life sciences, pharmaceutical discovery and QA, food safety, environmental, bioterrorism and other emerging markets.

Last year, one topic that was often discussed involved water. Several of the companies and researchers we spoke with had invested tremendous time on the subject. General Electric was working on a product that would allow them to do a better job of recycling surface water for human consumption. Another had been working to detect oil spills that occur off the mainland.

This year’s show is located at McCormick place in downtown Chicago from March 5th - 9th. If you’re attending, or considering to, reach out and let us know. We’ll be set up at booth 5245 and would love to hear from you. We’re currently scheduling live consultations with our validation and mapping experts as well as time with our product manager for discussing our DicksonOne platform.
