Formulatrix Presents Laboratory Automation Donation to Dr. Katsuhiko Murakami of Pennsylvania State University
News Oct 12, 2009
Out of the numerous packages we received from labs around the world, Dr. Murakami’s stood out in terms of impact to further the human condition and overall need of this laboratory automation. We wish him and his fellow researchers at Pennsylvania State University the best of luck with their research, which we hope our contribution will accelerate.
We would also like to thank all the laboratories that took the time to apply for the donation. It was a very hard decision for us to pick only one recipient.
