Los Angeles, CA – Instrument Business Outlook (IBO) today announced the winners of the 19th annual IBO Design Awards for excellence in the industrial design of analytical instruments, portable analytical instruments and laboratory equipment. The winners of the 2013 Awards demonstrate how industrial design can improve a product’s functionality and the end-user’s experience.

Andrew Alliance won the Bronze Award for Laboratory Equipment Industrial Design.
