Beckman Coulter Acquires Labcyte - Acoustic Liquid Handling Company
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences have announced its acquisition of Labcyte, a privately held, acoustic liquid handling company based in San Jose, California.
Labcyte is best known for its Echo® acoustic droplet ejection technology, which uses sound waves to transfer tiny amounts of liquid with unequalled speed and accuracy.

Labcyte technology enables faster and more cost-effective laboratory workflows in applications such as drug discovery and genomics.
"Labcyte's unique product portfolio complements our existing liquid handling and laboratory automation business. It provides new opportunities to develop and enhance time-saving solutions for customer workflows," said Jonathan Pratt, President, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. "Labcyte and Beckman Coulter Life Sciences share a common vision of advancing science through discovery, enabling the faster discovery and development of life-changing advances in medicine. Together we will make a powerful team, and an invaluable resource for current and future customers around the world."
