LABSMITH Products Now Distributed in South Korea by Revodix, Inc.

 

Livermore, CA (August 27, 2014) – LabSmith,Inc., a leading microfluidics lab equipment manufacturer, has formalized an agreement with Revodix, Inc. to distribute LabSmith’s products within South Korea. This partnership gives South Korean scientists in engineering, chemistry, and life sciences access to an expansive range of tools for lab-on-chip experiments.  Revodix, headquartered in Gyeonggi-do, is a distributor providing end-to-end solutions with tools to support customer’s flow chemistry and biology applications.    LabSmith Inc., based in Livermore, California, expands the Revodix product range, adding  a wide range of tools for innovative laboratory electronic, visualization and microfluidic solutions.

 

REVODIX CEO, Mr. Shin, describes the South Korean market in microfluidics for life sciences as growing rapidly. “The government of South Korea and local industry are investing heavily in R&D. Many working in the life sciences see an opportunity to develop new technology for biomedical research and diagnostics by leveraging the microfluidics platform. LabSmith products simplify these experiments and are sophisticated enough to enable researchers to perform and automate cutting edge research. Some LabSmith components are suitable for OEM applications in medical devices. We are excited to add LabSmith’s products to the products we offer  our customers.”

 

LabSmith president and CEO, Kirsten Pace agrees, stating “The South Korean investment in R&D at the universities, government labs, and industry, creates an opportunity for the adoption and improvement of micro- and nano-technologies, particularly as applied to life sciences. As scientists move to platforms that leverage the advantages of small dimensional and volume scales, LabSmith tools can remove obstacles to their success.”

 

By partnering, REVODIX and LabSmith can provide South Korean scientists with something more valuable than merely products – local service and support.  “REVODIX has both a local presence and a commitment to customer service including product demonstrations, installation and support.

AES Electrophoresis Society Workshop 2012 to Feature LabSmith LabPackage Demo and Hands-On Participation

By LabSmith on October 4, 2012.

LIVERMORE, CA (October 4, 2012) – The AES Electrophoresis Society is hosting a workshop entitled, “AES Microfluidics Workshop Part I – Fundamental of Electrokinetics and Microfluidics” at its AES Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The workshop will focus on the theory and fundamentals of electrokinetics transport in microfluidics devices and will feature demonstrations and instruction for the components of LabSmith’s LabPackage for micro- and nano-fluidic research.  The workshop will be held at the Courtyard by Marriot, Meeting Room A, Sunday, October 28, 2012, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Pittsburgh, PA.

 

The course instructor is Professor Todd Squires, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  The hands-on component of the workshop with LabSmith equipment will be taught by Yolanda Fintschenko, Ph.D., Director of Marketing, Sales, and New Technologies, LabSmith, Inc.  Course topics include:

  • Linear and nonlinear electrokinetic phenomena
  • Effects of surface conduction and ion conservation.
  • Convection vs. diffusion, Peclet number for separations, filtration, reactions and mixing.
  • Live demo experiments with LabSmith equipment.

The AES workshop is recommended for researchers in the field of microfluidics, biomedical and chemical engineers, industrial R&D engineers, chemists, biochemists, university professors and students. Attendees will focus on electrokinetic fluid flow and particle actuation. Scientist and Professor Blanca Lapizco-Encinas at Rochester Institute of Technology encourages students of all backgrounds to take this course stating, “This kind of instruction makes the abstraction of flow mechanics and transport in electrokinetic flow and parabolic pressure-driven flow on a chip come alive for students. It also gives scientist new to the field a feel for the physics and chemistry that dominate in the planar, microfluidic format.”

 

The workshop is open to AES meeting attendees. Please register at http://www.aesociety.org/meetings/2012/workshop_reg.php . Fee: Professors $149; Students and post-docs $99; Undergraduates $10. Fees also include an afternoon workshop entitled, “Modeling of Electrokinetic microfluidic problems with COMSOL.”
