Make your plans now to attend Pittcon 2014 in Chicago, Illinois. Prepare for a week of discovery, learning and connecting while participating in product demos and webinars, informative lectures, networking activities and dynamic short courses.

Pittcon is the largest annual conference and exposition for laboratory science. Discover the latest research and techniques in separation science in applications such as food science, pharmaceutical, polymers and plastics, genomics, proteomics and more.


For only $150, (before February 10, 2014) you get unlimited, week-long access to all technical sessions, and the exposition floor including all conference week amenities. Be a part of this must attend global event.


Get a first-hand look at cutting edge innovations in instrumentation, services, supplies, and technologies to help your lab run more effectively and efficiently.

Attending Pittcon is the best way to see all the latest equipment and instrumentation used in analytical spectroscopy. Discover solutions to all your laboratory challenges from leading exhibitors from 30 countries, participate in live demonstrations, attend vendor seminars, and consult with technical personnel. Afternoon mixers on the exposition floor give conferees with the opportunity to relax a bit and network with colleagues.

The Exposition opens on Monday, March 3 and runs through Thursday, March 6. Each day, there will be “Expo Only” hours from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., during which time; there will be no scheduled technical program. This will allow conferees time to visit the exposition without having to miss any important presentations.

The two Internet Cafes complete with internet access and printers will help you stay connected to family, friends, and coworkers. Wi-Fi service is complimentary and available in the public areas of the convention center.

There are more than 2,000 technical sessions including symposia, oral sessions, workshops, awards, and posters.

A significant portion of the Pittcon 2014 Technical Program offers presentations covering methodologies in spectroscopy used in environmental, bioanalytical, life science, biomedical, toxicology, fuels and energy and food science applications.

Below is a sampling of a few of the session titles:

  • Ion Mobility-mass Spectrometry as a Tool in Structural Biology
  • Silver Assisted LDI for High Spatial Resolution Imaging MS of Olefins from Thin Tissue Sections: Application to Atherosclerosis
  • New Analytical Capabilities of Differential Ion Mobility (FAIMS) in Water Analysis by Mass Spectrometry
  • Study to Monitor Chemical Contaminants in Foods
  • Searching for Metabolite Biomarkers of Neurological Disorders Using LC-MS Based Metabolomics
  • NSF National High Field Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance User Facility: Instrumentation, Science Drivers, Structure, and Operation
  • Imaging Metabolites and Metabolic Pathways in Cancer

Wallace H. Coulter Plenary Lecture

Steven A. Carr As part of the Opening Session on Sunday, March 2, Steven A. Carr, Director of Proteomics at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, will deliver the Wallace H. Coulter Plenary Lecture, “Quantitative Proteomics in Biology, Chemistry and Medicine.”

Dr. Steven A. Carr is Director of Proteomics at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He is internationally recognized as a leader in the development of novel proteomics methods and in their application in biology and medicine. Dr. Carr and his group collaborate with scientists throughout the greater Broad community (Broad Institute, Harvard, Harvard Medical School, and the 17 Harvard affiliated hospitals) to apply state-of-the art proteomics technology to address compelling questions in biology, chemistry and clinical medicine.


Conferee Networking Sessions offer a unique opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world. These sessions are free to all registered conferees and provide an open forum to discuss, interact, and problem solve during informal two-hour facilitated sessions.

Get connected to the conference and exposition before, during, and after with the new Pittcon 2014 Mobile App. The app will be available for free download in mid-November in the App Store and Android Market.

The Pittcon 2013 App serves as your all-in-one event guide by putting everything you need to know right onto your mobile device! You can begin using the Pittcon 2014 Mobile App in advance to view the entire event program and build your own schedule. The app will allow you to access floor maps, exhibitor info, follow along with presentation abstracts, rate sessions, and take notes. Communicating with other attendees has never been easier.

The Pittcon 2014 App gives you the opportunity to find out what others think and to voice your opinion in on-going live discussions via the Twitter feed. It also will provide other great ways to network; use the innovative “bump” feature to quickly exchange contact information with other attendees. This will be a valuable reference tool in the future to access the conference info again and again.

Any speakers you added to your favorites or notes you have taken are all available to download as a single event report after Pittcon has concluded. Your usage of the mobile app decreases the amount of printed materials needed onsite and helps reduce our carbon footprint. So be sure to take advantage of all the cutting-edge features and completely customize your experience.
