The 26th analytica (10. – 13. April 2018) received an overwhelming interest from record-breaking 35‘626 visitors and 1‘164 exhibitors from 49 different countries. This year’s analytica was the most international analytica in history – and Spectral Service was part of it.

Our booth was frequently visited by new and repeat customers, cooperation partners, salespersons, professors and students who were introduced into the NMR spectroscopy, a powerful tool for the quality control of pharmaceuticals, food products, cosmetics, reference standards and chemicals. With the subject “100 NMR Experiments in Kitchen and Household” we presented the broad spectrum of applications for the NMR spectroscopy – in our booth and also in the very well attended presentation, given by Prof. Dr. Bernd Diehl. Our topic, the presentation and our booth met a great deal of interest and have attracted considerable praise.

We have enjoyed meeting our customers and interested parties, visiting other booths such as the Wiley booth (Fig. 3) and having fun at the exhibition.

NMR spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the analysis of food products, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and reference standards. A small selection of applications was presented at the Analytica Forum by Prof. Dr. Bernd Diehl (Fig. 4).
