Beckman Coulter Life Sciences will have a full team of dedicated professionals and informative programming at the upcoming Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) International Conference and Exhibition. The show will take place February 25 – March 1, 2023, at the San Diego Convention Center.

Right inside the show entrance at booth 1111, attendees will have the chance to interact with instruments—including one-on-one demonstrations—to learn about workflow improvements in areas such as drug discovery, next generation sequencing, cell line development, genomics, synthetic biology, and screening along with plasmid prep and PCR cleanup.

“We understand that labs are under increasing pressure to do more with less and are under tight deadlines,” said Amy Yoder, Director of Product Management for Automation and Genomics. “Beckman Coulter Life Sciences strives to be the trusted partner for lab professionals, helping to advance scientific research and patient care, while reducing the risk for errors and alleviating the strain on lab staff. Whether it’s through augmented reality, virtual calls, in-lab demonstrations, or at trade shows like SLAS2023, we are committed to meeting customers where they are to help them discover the future of laboratory automation to help accelerate answers, streamline screening, and automate workflows.”

Popular instruments showcased at booth 1111 will include the Echo 525 and 655T Acoustic Liquid Handlers, Biomek i7 Automated Workstation, Biomek NGeniuS Next Generation Library Prep System, BioLector XT Microbioreactor, EMnetik System, Access Laboratory Workstation, and reagents.
