As experts in fluidtransferology, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences offers a broad range of flexible, scalable liquid handling solutions and reagents for NGS, genomic, cellular, protein and other workflows — including areas such as synthetic biology and more.
Use the Biomek i-Series to automate complex steps of the protocol. Transform and culture bacterial cells and prepare DNA samples for use with this liquid handler. Perform initial testing of your product, from transduction or analytical characterization, and scale therapeutic biological production downstream of this workflow.
The Echo 525 Acoustic Liquid Handler flexes across every step of a synthetic biology workflow while miniaturizing reactions and consuming less resources.
Our reagent portfolio is powered by Solid Phase Reversible Immobilization (SPRI) technology—widely known as the science behind AMPure XP—which uses SPRI paramagnetic beads to selectively bind nucleic acids by size.

Syngulon is a synthetic biology startup developing original genetic technologies using bacteriocins to improve microbial fermentation.
Our team of scientists works in different academic laboratories and our R&D programs involve partners from Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and the UK. We think of ourselves as a “Startup in the Labs”, meaning that we work directly in the labs of our academic partners.
The members of our Scientific Advisory Board are active in Belgium, France and the USA.


IBioIC is a networking and support organisation that connects industry, academia and government to bring biotechnology processes and products to the global market. We do this by offering scale-up facilities, talent development, funding provision, and promotion of Scotland’s unique assets.



We are leading the way in promoting excellence and equality in science, and in channelling high quality knowledge to solving today’s societal problems around microbiology. We do this by funding research, giving out travel and training grants to scientists, publishing our journals, running events, and managing collaborative projects with other partner organizations.
