The 31st SCA Annual Symposium took place in the wonderful city of Vienna at the Hofburg Palace. A four-day technical program plus 30 resident exhibitors were enjoyed by the many visitors, along with a gala dinner cruise on the river Danube.
Strata exhibited a number of its standard products, including the DCP50 Pump – which is the ideal replacement for ageing Pharmacia pumps – and our Core holder for Micro CT Applications – which generated a huge amount of interest from visitors – as well as piston vessels and standard core holders.
Team Strata was represented by Dr Roger Kimber and Mira Jangra who created a significant buzz on the booth by running a competition to win a FitBit Charge 2! Two riddles were collected from the stand each day of the event with all the correct answers entered into a prize draw on the final day. Strata was delighted to be able to take to the stage with the SCA President Elect, Lesley James, to draw the winner.
Strata’s Managing Director, Dr Roger Kimber said of the 2017 Symposium, “Overall the event was really good and we made some great new contacts. The prize draw was really well received and we were kindly given the opportunity to reveal the answers on stage and present the prize to the worthy winner, Hamid Hosseinzade Khanamiri from the Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU).”
“We’re already looking ahead to the 2018 SCA Annual Symposium in Trondheim, Norway and hope to be working with the SCA President to help increase awareness of the Society of Core Analysts through various social media channels,” Dr Kimber concluded.

It was really good of Strata Technology to arrange a quiz, a first of it’s kind at SCA and this provided fun and entertainment during breaks. I was really lucky that I won the prize draw and am already enjoying my new smart watch.
