Peter Boogaard, founder of Industrial Lab Automation Consultancy, studied analytical chemistry in Delft (The Netherlands). Here he was introduced to computer software during his research on inductively couples plasma (ICP) technology, now a de-facto standard in many analytical analysis methods. Peter started his international professional career with Perkin-Elmer Corporation. Thanks to his first employer, who understood very early on, the importance of the end-user experience, he created many application programs to for fill the client needs. Peter has been able to adopt and expand this behaviour successfully with great companies including Applied Biosystems, Oracle, Informix, Symyx, Life Technology and LabVantage. Peter has published several white papers and contributes in industry advisory boards.
