Press release date: Jan 06, 2010

Aven, Inc. and its SharpVue division are extending a tradition of annual participation in two leading technology industry events - Medical Device and Manufacturing (MD&M) West and Pittcon.

The global distributor of optical equipment and precision hand tools will be at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California from Feb. 9-11 for MD&M West. At Booth 866, headquarters executives from Michigan and regional marketing representatives will demonstrate the second-generation iLoupe XL hand-held microscope, the Aven Micro Zoom 6000 video system for labs, and stainless steel maintenance tools for sterile settings.

The medical device exposition is held alongside the Electronics West gathering for manufacturers in another industry Aven serves.

On the east coast three weeks later, Aven and SharpVue will be at Booth 727 during Pittcon 2010, taking place March 1-4 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The international laboratory science event features 920 exhibitors and expected attendance exceeding 20,000. Pittcon is organized by the Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy.

Aven's team will showcase product lines with applications for biotechnology, life sciences and health care. "Attending professional conferences and exhibitions are an important element of marketplace education," says Mike Shahpurwala, president of Aven. "They help our engineers and field representatives stay attuned to customers' needs. It's also a chance to demonstrate innovative ways to streamline workflow, save workbench space or achieve other efficiencies."
