Fireworks and Automation in the Laboratory


Dear Readers,

Although it is already a little late, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you a great new year 2019!

In this issue of the newsletter, I would like to draw your attention to the experiment of the month. The experiment shows how metal ions are responsible for the colours we see during firework displays.

In our Read and Win series the presented book is "Automation Solutions for Analytical Measurements". During the upcoming Labvolution fair, one of the authors, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Kerstin Thurow, will partake in a panel discussion about the topic of Automation in the Laboratory. further details will be posted here as well.

Best regards,
Dr. Martin Graf-Utzmann
Editor, G.I.T. Laboratory Journal
