In a separate award category, the Cascade 5200 Industrial Gas Analyzer by Cascade Technologies was recognized as the Innovative Product of the Year.
Each year, this long-running symposium, sponsored by the ISA Analysis Division, brings together process and analytical professionals and industry experts and vendors from across the world in a dynamic and interactive environment to improve technical knowledge, discuss emerging trends and developments, review best practices and innovative processes, and applaud the contributions of analysis professionals.

This year, 12 technical sessions and 35 technical papers covered leading-edge topics in sampling, chromatography, spectroscopy, chemiluminescence and other analytical techniques. The conference program also included: a banquet keynote presentation by Rod Spitler of Dow Chemical; a Technology Forum and Exhibition showcasing the latest products and services; three training courses led by leading subject matter experts; various committee meetings; award presentations; a banquet; and numerous networking receptions and social activities.

During the awards ceremony, ISA’s Analysis Division presented eight Gilmer Thomason Fowler Konrad (GTFK) awards. The GTFK awards program, established in 1976 as a memorial to four of ISA’s past directors (Fred Gilmer, Edward Thomason, Lewis Fowler and Ken Konrad), recognises the authors of the best technical papers in the analysis field.
