SCIEX collaborates with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to bring automation to the Echo® MS system

Monday, February 27, 2023

At SLAS 2023, SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, announces a new collaboration with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, a global leader in laboratory workflow automation and innovation, to provide comprehensive workflows for high-throughput screening, HT-ADME and synthetic biology studies. The Echo® MS system, built on Acoustic Ejection Mass Spectrometry technology from SCIEX, is now compatible with the Biomek and Echo liquid handler lines from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences.

 The Beckman Coulter Life Sciences automatic liquid handling solutions are comprised of the Echo and Biomek lines. Both offer a broad range of flexible and scalable liquid handling solutions for a variety of workflows. Customers with existing or planned installations of Echo and Biomek Liquid Handlers can connect them to the Echo® MS system and automate sample handling.

“Collaborating with the life sciences community to accelerate answers through automation and innovative solutions is what drives us every day at Beckman Coulter Life Sciences,” said Amy Yoder, Director of Product Management for Automation and Genomics at Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. “Through this collaboration with SCIEX, we are elated to showcase the powerful combination of our Biomek and Echo Liquid Handlers with the SCIEX Echo® MS system and CE analysis instrumentation, and the workflow enhancements this might provide in a variety of areas, including early drug discovery.”

“With this collaboration, and the announcement earlier today about our collaboration with HighRes Biosolutions, there are now three leaders in the space set to support our customers as they explore best-in-class solutions,” said Jose Castro Perez, Senior Director of Market Development at SCIEX.
