HYDERABAD: It’s not only about the burettes, pipettes and a few equipments that make a chemistry lab work. There is much more to it. Like DrM Filter Technology which has come up with a vibro mixture that can be used in the laboratory to mix enzymes properly. “It is used while making vaccine products, insulin products and many other similar products,” says Sachin Raina, a representative of the company at the India Lab Expo launched on Thursday.
The vibro mixture is among the many products on display at the expo. Around 300 companies from India and abroad are displaying products that cater to biotechnology, life sciences, material testing and laboratory consumable products and instruments for the visitors. The three-day expo is open for students and buyers and seeks to bring suppliers and buyers of focal industries and institutions face-to-face. Explaining the concept of the expo, Pallav Singh, assistant manager at India Lab Expo says, “We Indians are proud of boasting about the imported products that we are using either in homes, office or labs. But we don’t realise that these products have been used in other countries since a long time. Often the products that are sent here are the ones that are rejected by the other countries. We are conducting this expo to make people aware of the products. We have brought together companies from various sectors with latest lab technologies.
Along with the expo, we are also holding seminars where the industry experts will speak to the participants.” Students from University of Hyderabad, Osmania University, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research have been visiting the expo, he informs.
Some fascinating products worth a look in the expo is the stall by Mohan Brothers which has come up with models of car gear box, a hydraulic break, turbo chargers, “These equipments are used in college labs to show how the live ones work to the students,”says Shweta Sharma, a representative at the exhibition.
To make people aware of solar products one can use to conserve energy, First Source is offering a solar power bank, solar fan and a solar bag which can charge products like mobile phone or an iPod or mp3 on the go. More such interesting products are being displayed at the expo that will go on till November 8 at HITEX.
