Guess how many Tecan Tips are in the jar

Visit booth 831 and try to guess the number of pipette tips in the jar. Even if you don’t win a state-of-the-art ultra-cool Apple Watch, you’ll get to spend time with our Tecan Experts and enjoy an empower drink at our Empower Bar.

See you there! (Drawing held Jan. 27)


Our booth speakers yesterday covered topics that included: Simplification with the Fluent® approach - Joe Zer; Automated metabolic analysis in photodynamic tumor therapy - Kristjan Plätzer; The top 5 pitfalls of custom automation - Avinash Peddi; The path from testing to a successful project - Wolfgang Jörg; Accelerating drug discovery - Spark 20M® - Siegfried Sasshofer; plus a special event held in Room 5A: Lunch and Learn: How to standardize Freedom EVO® with the QC kit™ - Joe Sullivan along with Keith Albert and George Rodrigues from Artel USA.

Heard at SLAS2016:

They’re always concerned about me achieving my results. If I call them, they either solve the problem immediately or have somebody come over in no time. Tecan’s support is best in class.  

- Rick Thomas, Precision Diagnostics

Tecan Booth SLAS2016


It’s been nonstop at the Tecan booth both days and standing room only for some speaker's presentations. We're delighted to say that our Empower Bar has become quite the social hub with people coming to hang out with us and not just take meetings. So, if you fancy an empowering drink and a stimulating conversation at the Empower Bar, we’d love to see you.
