Share this blog

SLAS Europe 2023 is just around the corner, and we're thrilled to once again be joining other leaders in the technology and life sciences sectors as we collaborate to transform research. This time we're heading to Brussels where the theme will be 'Science set in Motion' - a topic that aligns well with our personal mission to accelerate improvements in human health outcomes.

At SPT Labtech, we truly believe in the power of automation to allow you to work more effectively and productively in the lab. We're looking forward to sharing with you our suite of automated solutions from liquid handling to sample management, and sharing insights from our team of expert scientists and engineers.

"We're thrilled to once again be joining the life sciences community at SLAS Europe." said David Newble, CEO of SPT Labtech. "Our mission is to empower scientists to perform their best work, and we hope that our innovative solutions and expertise will be a valuable resource for attendees at this year's event."

This event is always a special one in our calendar. It gives us a fantastic opportunity to meet with other like-minded scientists and innovators, to share insights, showcase new technologies and catch up on the latest industry developments.

One of the main highlights of our exhibit at SLAS Brussels 2023 is firefly®, our revolutionary all-in-one genomics liquid handling platform. firefly brings together the best of SPT Labtech technology for pipetting, dispensing, incubating and shaking in a single compact design, so you can maximize your output while preserving precious laboratory space. Underpinned by powerful, intuitive software, firefly unlocks the potential of automation for all to streamline NGS library prep and accelerate genomic research.
