Lindau, Germany: – Laboratory engineering specialist DORNIER LabTech Systems GmbH (DORNIER LTS) will connect with its growing North American customer base audiences at the upcoming Pittcon event in Chicago.

DORNIER LTS will use Pittcon to introduce its latest version of the revolutionary PIRO® to the US market, showing the potential of the German-made desktop liquid handling system for all kinds of laboratory applications in diagnostic, pharmaceutical and molecular biological companies in the USA.

Live PIRO® demonstrations

The German company will exhibit at stand 4852 at the McCormick Place Exhibition Center, in partnership with its US joint-venture, New York-based Kinematica USA, whose CEO Mr. Andreas Niens, will be also present at the event.

The DORNIER LTS team at Pittcon will be led by its Director of Global Sales and Marketing Michael Duchaussoy. The team will conduct live demonstrations of the PIRO® on the stand throughout the five days of the show.

High end pipetting and accuracy

“We will show visitors how PIRO® represents automated pipetting at its best and most accessible,” said Mr. Duchaussoy.

“This is an ideal solution for end users working in diagnostic, pharmaceutical, academic or chemical laboratories with daily pipetting tasks who need high end pipetting accuracy combined with perfect ease of use,” he explained.
