Eight French companies in the laboratory technology, analysis, instrumentation and diagnostics fields will showcase their products and services at the "French Pavilion" during the fourth edition of Analytica Vietnam from April 15-17.

The exhibition, which is supported by the French Association of Laboratory Equipment Manufacturers and Traders, aims to deepen links between French and Vietnamese companies and develop sustainable commercial, industrial or technological partnerships.

France has important know-how in laboratory technologies with more than 50 percent of its output for export.

The French companies are Air Liquide Vietnam, Chauvin Arnoux, F-Dgsi, Hemera, Jacomex, Sederw, Tem Partner and Trionyx. All have strong references overseas and some are already active in Vietnam.
