SoloPoint Attends The SLAS Conference

On Jan. 21, 2014, SoloPoint Solutions kick started this year’s line of events by attending the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) Conference and Exhibition.

This conference is a five-day event held at the San Diego Convention Center where the latest technology in science and automation gets displayed. The SoloPoint team got to see exhibits that feature machines that contribute to the medical and biotechnology field.

Other exhibits were just great engineering designs. Take the Festo AquaJelly. This robot has the mechanism to make it move like a real jellyfish. See it in action here.

SoloPoint Team Member  David Sohn said this of the conference, “The SLAS show was an excellent showcase of forward thinking engineering concepts in not only design but the manufacture of many necessary components in the medical device and technology environment.”

Here are some images from the SLAS Conference:
