Kasper Stoy and his colleagues from SDU presented the EvoBot reactive liquid handling robot at the annual technology conference of the union of Danish Lab Technicians (“Dansk Laborant-Forening”) on the 21st of May 2015. The meeting brings together lab technicians from leading companies in drug-development, biotechnology, and chemistry in Denmark. Associate professor Kasper Stoy gave a presentation about the potential of EvoBot and afterwards attendants were invited to a live demonstration. Several attendants expressed interest in the EvoBot concept and its use in their companies. Hence, follow-up meeting will be organized with these companies to understand the specific needs with the aim to include this in further development of the EvoBot robot.
