The Value Proposition of Analytical Chemistry
October 27-30, 2008
Analytical chemistry has always thrived at boundaries both inside and outside chemistry, such as biology, materials sciences, forensics, and more. As an applied discipline, analytical chemists must generally focus on customer service while maintaining an innovative edge in their ability to deliver greater quantities of data faster, more efficiently, and hopefully with increasing quality. Our constant challenge is to leverage critical thinking skills as well as expertise in hardware and software integration to effectively deliver project milestones.
