Allan Jordan is Head of Chemistry, Drug Discovery Unit of Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Manchester institute, the largest single disease research charity in the world. He is also a Labcyte customer who was profiled in an award-winning video where he discussed how he used the Echo® Liquid Handler to advance his research and drug discovery work.
We’re pleased to report a new application for the Echo Liquid Handler, with plenty of resources available if you’re interested in learning more. Serial microsampling allows scientists to use fewer animals in studies and reduce costs without compromising data quality. This is particularly useful for scientists conducting pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) research.
Our customers at the Institute for Systems Genetics at the NYU Langone Medical Center have a new video on YouTube that shows how they use Labcyte technology in their genome foundry.
We’d like to give a shout out to our customers at Ginkgo Bioworks for the launch of their lab, Bioworks2. According to an article by Eliza Strickland in IEEE Spectrum, “with the help of some nifty robotic equipment” – including our Echo Liquid Handlers – “Ginkgo has created a factory for churning out exotic lifeforms, the likes of which have never before been seen on this planet.”
The annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics is right around the corner, and the Labcyte team is looking forward to the festivities in Vancouver. The conference will run from October 18th to 22nd, bringing together more than 6,000 scientists for an unparalleled overview of the year’s progress in genetics and genomics.
