28 - 29 September 2016

Echo Acoustic Droplet Ejection

Come and learn about the Echo Acoustic Liquid Handling technology and how it overcomes traditional liquid handling barriers to lower the cost of genomics applications in many areas, including Synthetic Biology/DNA Assembly, Single-cell Genomics, and Drug Discovery.

This 2-day event will also include a special Labcyte social event at The Scotch Whisky Experience in the glorious city of Edinburgh!

Space is limited, so RSVP today
