SPT Labtech: Leading the world with innovative automation - SLAS 2023

SLAS San Diego 2023 has come and gone, and SPT Labtech were thrilled to be exhibiting at this premier event for life sciences and laboratory automation. This year's conference was bigger and better than ever, bringing together leading experts, innovators, and decision-makers from the industry to share insights, showcase new technologies, and network with one another.

As a global leader in laboratory automation, we're proud to have been a part of this exciting event, showcasing our latest products and services to attendees from all around the world. From innovative liquid handling systems to sample management solutions, we have a wealth of expertise and experience to offer the SLAS community.

One of the main highlights of our exhibit at SLAS San Diego 2023 was firefly®. The new platform supports innovative all-in-one liquid handling, bringing together multiple technologies within a single compact design for more efficient library and sample preparation workflows and maximum output. Underpinned by powerful, intuitive software, firefly unlocks the potential of automation for all to accelerate genomic research.
