For anyone who has ever been to Microbe, you will know that it’s a fun event as well as educational. Certainly over the last few years, delegates at the event have been entertained throughout the day by the trade being made to wear fancy dress. The organisers established a competition whereby if delegates collect a sticker from each trade stand and correctly identify the theme of the stand, they can be entered into a draw for some really nice prizes.
On the Don Whitley Scientific stand this year was the latest edition of the plate imaging analysis software for WASPLab, the automated sample processing system for microbiology. If you haven’t seen WASPLab yet and you are thinking of automation in your laboratory, check out the information on our website at http://www.dwscientific.co.uk/walk-away-specimen-processor/
When I first attended this event in 2008, most trade representatives made an effort to enter into the spirit of the competition. However, this year everyone participated and it made for an excellent atmosphere for trade and delegates alike. Here is a photograph of our stand and sales team – I hope you can guess that our assigned theme was “Rome”!
