Lindau, Germany: – Laboratory engineering specialist DORNIER LabTech Systems GmbH will be returning for a fourth time to the biennial European Meeting for Molecular Diagnostics (EMMD) in the Netherlands next month.

The company will use its EMMD appearance to show how far its highly versatile PIRO® automated pipetting small robot has evolved since the previous meeting in 2015.

Demonstrating versatility

The DORNIER LabTech Systems display at Stand 2 of the co-located exhibition will showcase PIRO® in its many permutations and will feature live demonstrations of its extensive liquid handling, qPCR and other capabilities, including MALDI-TOF, crystallization and HPLC life science applications.

DORNIER LabTech Systems Head of application support, Dr. Rudolf Walser, will conduct live demonstrations assisted by Jeroen Poodt, (CEO and owner of LabHelp Robotics).

Conference offer

As a bonus, stand visitors who wish to use a PIRO® on their own project can obtain one free of charge to use for up to three months provided their project leads to an eventual order for a system.

“We are delighted to be returning to the European Meeting for Molecular Diagnostics,” commented Dr. Rudolf Walser.

“This is a key event for many of the laboratory sectors where our clients are active, which is why we have been involved with EMMD through almost half its 20-year history,” said Dr. Walser.

Ease of use

“Once again, we will be reaching out to the very many laboratory heads and researchers who are looking for a compact, accessible and user-friendly liquid handling system that provides full traceability along with precise and reproducible automation of pipetting steps and easy import/export into LIMS systems,” he added.

“Our presentations will also focus on PIRO’s powerful software for qPCR and all molecular biology related lab tasks,” said Jeroen Poodt.

About EMMD 2017

The European Meeting on Molecular Diagnostics (EMMD) is a biennial conference held in The Netherlands and devoted to all aspects of molecular diagnostics in human disease and pathology.

The 10th conference, EMMD 2017, is a three-day event opening October 11 at the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin In the seaside resort town of Noordwijk aan Zee.

From its roots in former Benelux- and European meetings on PCR diagnostics, EMMD has expanded to include other amplification techniques, general probe technology and applications across a wide range of laboratory disciplines, including clinical microbiology, virology, pathology, clinical chemistry, clinical genetics, pharmacogenetics, haematology and oncology.

The emphasis of this multi-disciplinary meeting is on novel molecular technologies and innovative applications in the diagnosis, monitoring and screening of human diseases. Presentations will consist of invited-lectures by internationally renowned experts in combination with selected abstract presentations and poster sessions. There is also a co-located industrial exhibition.

The congress is organized by the EMMD Secretariat, with more information available at:
