Pittcon 2017 will be held from March 5th-9th in Chicago, IL. Pittcon started as a small technical conference and exposition that was first held in the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh in February, 1950.
Pittcon is made up of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).
This year is the first year Pittcon will incorporate Cannabis analysis and science, and our co-founder, Dr. Robert Martin, has been invited to speak on behalf of the Association of Commercial Cannabis Laboratories.
"The symposium will also hear from Robert Martin, representing the Association of Commercial Cannabis Laboratories, who will outline their efforts to try to establish evidence-based quality measures for cannabis testing. The talk will touch upon issues faced in pesticides, residual solvents and microbiological testing, as well as consider the future of the cannabis testing industry."
