MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2018
The reviews are in, the judges have spoken, and Echo® Liquid Handlers have come out on top.
The Labcyte team has returned from San Diego with two awards: the SLAS New Product Award for the Echo® 655T Liquid Handler; and the SelectScience Reviewer's Choice Award for Drug Discovery & Development Product of the Year for Echo® 500 Series Liquid Handlers.
The awards were presented at the International Conference for Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS2018), which attracted more than 5,000 participants from 42 countries to the San Diego Convention Center on Feb. 3-7.
Labcyte CEO and President Mark Fischer-Colbrie was on site to receive the honors, thanking collaborators AstraZeneca, Brooks Life Sciences and Titian Software for making the Echo 655T and its accompanying Access™ Dual Robot System (DRS) acoustic sample management solution a reality.
"We are very appreciative of the ability to work on these types of innovation, and to collaborate with a wide range of people," he said.
The Reviewers' Choice Awards began in 2015 to celebrate the products and companies with the best customer reviews and ratings on SelectScience, an online publisher of news and reviews meant to inform scientists about the best products and applications. The winners are decided based on the thousands of product reviews written by scientists around the world.
The Echo® 500 Series received strong marks for ease of use, service and value. According to one reviewer, the Echo Liquid Handler represents the "industry standard for touchless dispensing."
"The Echo Liquid Handler has completely transformed the way I carry out my experiments," wrote another reviewer.
