Press Release | DORNIER LabTech Systems GmbH
SEPTEMBER 13, 2017
Lindau, Germany: – Laboratory engineering specialist DORNIER LabTech Systems GmbH will use its debut appearance as exhibitor at the Malaysia International Genetics Congress (MIGC) in late September to introduce its ground-breaking PIRO® automated pipetting small robot to the local market.
Dornier LabTech Systems will share its stand at the event with local distributor BioSpensa Resource based at the nearby Selangor Science Park in Petaling Jaya.
Advanced liquid handling
Mathew Thomas of BioSpensa will assist a DORNIER LabTech Systems team led by Head of Application Support, Dr. Rudolf Walser, in conducting live demonstration of the personal pipetting robot and its advanced liquid handling capabilities.
“This event marks our debut as a laboratory force in the fast growing Malaysian market,” commented Dr. Walser.
“This will be the first opportunity for most of the visitors to this congress to see the PIRO®’s huge potential as a personal pipetting robot with its powerful software for qPCR and all molecular biology related labs,” said Dr. Rudolf Walser.
“Our presentations will focus on presenting the revolutionary PIRO® liquid handling robot and its personal pipetting capabilities, with its powerful software for qPCR and all molecular biology related lab tasks,” he said.
“We will also be able to demonstrate PIRO®’s potential applications in related fields like MALDI-TOF, HPLC or other life science related laboratories,” Dr. Walser explained.
“So our stand will be of very high interest to potential OEM Partners and Heads of laboratories needing a keenly priced but highly sophisticated liquid handling solution that offers high end pipetting quality combined with ease of use, along with easy import or export possibilities to or from LIMS systems or other instruments,” he added.
The Dornier LabTech Systems team will be able to offer stand visitors access to a PIRO® console free of charge provided their project leads to an order within three months of MIGC12.

About MIGC 2017
The Malaysia International Genetics Congress (MIGC) was founded in 1995 as an open conference for geneticists held once every two years. The main aims of the Congress are to create a platform from which researchers from universities, public and private research institutions can reflect on advances made in the scientific fields of genetics, consider the best of contemporary research progress and anticipate future developments.
The12th Congress, MIGC12, is a three-day even opening September 25 at the Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya in Bangi, Selangor. The theme for 2017 is “Soaring Beyond Frontiers of Genetics”, reflecting ever-increasing knowledge and understanding on the effect of genes in every sphere of life. The congress will highlight the topic on genome editing specifically focusing on the CRISPR system. The Congress also will cover genetic topics for plants, human, animal and microbes.
The congress is organized by the Genetic Society of Malaysia with more information available at: www.migc12.com/
