The trade fair for laboratory & process technology for French-speaking Switzerland


The 4th ILMAC Lausanne 2022 will be held on 28 – 29 September 2022 at Expo Beaulieu Lausanne (Switzerland) and will combine up-to-date knowledge transfer with high-quality product offerings for the chemistry and life science community in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. BioAlps will host a 36 sqm booth and invite partners to present their solutions.



The lectures on the focus topics Sustainable Solutions in Laboratory and Production and Sustainability in Life Sciences are organised in close cooperation with Swiss Chemical Society (SCG) and our association, BioAlps. Lab automation and self-learning systems are used to make laboratory and production processes more efficient, to increase product quality, and to have better control and documentation of critical parameters.
