Would you like to learn more about our innovative robotics solution, “Sally”? Join us for a workshop scheduled ahead of the Swiss Innovation Forum, where we’ll provide comprehensive insights into our modular and flexible automation solution designed for cell and gene therapy as well as laboratory applications! “Sally” is highly adaptable and can be employed for both adherent cell cultures and cell cultures in suspensions. Beyond precise vial, tube, bottle and pipette handling, “Sally” offers the integration of additional elements such as stirrers, incubators, and centrifuges (more information)

“Today, we witness for example a substantial workforce demand in the production of inoculum. Our solution aims to significantly alleviate this requirement while concurrently enhancing process reliability and yield. The same principle applies to various applications within the laboratory domain. Through our modular framework, we empower users to seamlessly adapt additional processes onto the system.”, Fabian Stutz, CEO of Pharmabotix

Be part of the journey to witness the future of robotics in the field of cell and gene therapy. We look forward to welcoming you to our workshop!
