Every three to four years, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) organizes a Pharmaceutical Sciences World Congress (PSWC) which alternates among the American, Asian, and European continents; the Americas will host the 2010 PSWC at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA, November 14 -18.
Micromeritics Instrument Corporation and Particulate Systems, a Micromeritics brand, will exhibit its materials characterization instrumentation that includes the Particle Insight Dynamic Image Analyzer, TriStar II Surface Area and Porosity System, and GeoPyc 1360 Pycnometer in booth 2412. Micromeritics Pharmaceutical Services will highlight its analytical contract services in booth 913.
The FIP Pharmaceutical Sciences World Congress 2010, in association with the AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition, brings together thousands of scientists from around the world with the goal of "Improving Global Health Through Advances in Pharmaceutical Sciences," the scientific theme of this year's event. The event combines not only the exhibition which showcases the latest in technology, services, and supplies, but a scientific program that will validate current scientific methodology and present new research.
The scientific program includes concentrated short courses, symposia, roundtables, and more than 2,500 contributed papers covering the latest research in pharmaceutical sciences. Speakers include scientists from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the National Institute of Health, as well as leading pharmaceutical companies and academia.
As part of the scientific program, Surface Measurement Systems in conjunction with Particulate Systems, and Micromeritics Pharmaceutical Services is presenting a poster titled, "Milling Effects on the Aspect Ratio and Surface Energy Heterogeneity of Mannitol."
