The first-ever African International Phytomedicine Scientific Society Congress (APSS) was held at the University of Pretoria last week, which brought together a diverse and dynamic community of researchers, practitioners, educators, and industry professionals, highlighting the collaborative spirit that defines the African phytomedicine landscape.
On the #Labotec exhibition stand at this event, Deborah Shaw (Labotec Marketing Manager) and Luane vd Merwe (Product specialist) (pictured in the photo), and Nombuso Ntshangase had fun extracting solvent from essential oils using the #Buchi rotary evaporator. The whole exhibition area was eventually smelling like eucalyptus oil.
