Precision liquid handling 2023

Join CSEM's 6th annual Precision Liquid Handling workshop at Microcity, Neuchâtel on Nov. 29. Discover cutting-edge liquid handling technologies, network with industry leaders, and gain insights from experts in the field. Don't miss this opportunity to stay at the forefront of liquid handling advancements.

Logo event about Precision liquid handling

The handling of small amounts of liquids using innovative liquid handling systems (robotic, microfluidic, etc.) is reducing the consumption of reagents and costs for numerous laboratory and industrial applications. This increasing precision is the result of the miniaturization of fluidic and electronic systems. Precision liquid handling is paving the way for advancements in -omics, organoid cell culture, and microfluidics.

Through innovation pitches and two keynote presentations, we will navigate the ever-changing and innovative liquid handling landscape.

CSEM and  Toolpoint  are pleased to welcome you to this workshop and to hear your thoughts and opinions during the presentations and discussions. This year we are putting special emphasis on the sustainability aspects of products and technologies. Don't miss the opportunity to showcase your products or technology to a group of industry professionals!
