Markes International Sponsors High-Flyers at Environmental Forensics Conference

publication date: Oct 2, 2014
author/source: Markes International

Markes International (Llantrisant) helped to nurture upcoming talent in the analytical sciences at the recent International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) conference in Cambridge, UK, which focused on Emerging Trends and New Technologies.

/INEF AwardsThe highlight of the event for Markes was helping to judge the best student presentations at the event. Markes’ TOF MS Business Unit Manager Nick Bukowski said “We were really impressed by the presentations we saw at INEF Cambridge, which were done to an exceptional standard. These were a credit to both the students themselves for all their hard work, and also to the organisers for providing a forum for showcasing the very best research in this rapidly expanding field”.

As well as helping to judge the presentations, Markes was involved in a student awards ceremony on Tuesday 5 August. Joint first prize went to David Megson (Plymouth University, UK) for his presentation ‘Techniques to age date human exposure to PCBs’ and to Luis Ovando-Fuentealba (Universidad Austral de Chile) for ‘Assessing indoor pollution by PM2.5 in southern Chile’. 

Organiser Dr Caroline Gauchotte-Lindsay, Lecturer in Environmental Engineering at the University of Glasgow, said “The awards would not have been possible without Markes International, who through their kind sponsorship of the best student presentation prize contributed greatly to the success of this year’s conference”.

The theme of the conference was Emerging Trends and New Technologies, and a wide range of topics were covered, including Analytical Biosciences, Environment, Sustainability & Energy, Forensic Science, Industry & Technology, and Inorganic.

Markes’ Select-eV technology also attracted attention, having earlier in the year received an ‘Honorable Mention’ at the Pittcon 2014 Editors’ Awards, and showcased at INEF by a booth featuring a BenchTOF-Select model and video on Select-eV.

Markes International manufactures specialist analytical instrumentation for trace organic analysis. It is renowned as a global market leader for analytical thermal desorption and for developing ground-breaking time-of-flight MS technology for gas chromatography. In January 2013, Markes became part of the Mulheim-based German family business Schauenburg International Group, and has technical support centres in the UK, USA and Germany.
