New Product Showcase

The Gulf Coast Conference will sponsor a New Product Showcase to provide a forum for the introduction of new technology and innovation to our attendees. On Tuesday and Wednesday of the meeting there will be special table top displays with new products and technology for your examination. Several vendors will provide these products and personnel to describe them during specific times in the convention center lounge area.

We are asking all Attendees to stop by and take a look at these products and complete an opinion survey about what you see. One attendee ballot will be drawn each afternoon and will receive a prize. Must be present to win! The GCC will appreciate your participation, and we know that the participating vendors will as well!

Listed below are the participating exhibitors.

PerkinElmer's new LPC 500™ Liquid Particle Counter is a single particle optical sizing (SPOS) system designed to count and size particles individually with high resolution. When used for in-service oil samples, only 4 mL of 10x diluted samples are typically needed, offering reproducible results between high- and low-viscosity samples, while also minimizing washout requirements and solvent waste. And when coupled to PerkinElmer's proven Avio® 500 ICP-OES, the combined solution enables the same diluted sample to be analyzed for both multi-element determination as well as particle count and size in a single run, a game changer in laboratory workflow that considerably reduces operating costs.
