Gilson Partners with Eight Life Science Labs to Provide Hands-on Learning and Develop Future Technologies


Villiers-le-bel, October 30, 2017 - Gilson, an industry leader in automated and manual liquid handling, purification and extraction instruments, is pleased to announce the partnership with l’Ecole de Biologie Industrielle (EBI) an engineering school based in Cergy, France. Gilson will donate 200 PIPETMAN to educate current and future scientists about pipettes and provide hands-on learning experiences.

This three-year partnership provides the opportunity for hundreds of teachers-researchers, students, and industrialists to learn best in class pipetting techniques and overcome the challenges they have seen or will see working in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, agro-industrial, and environmental bio-industry fields. Researchers will also work closely with Gilson research and development teams to test and give input into the development of future innovations.

All eight laboratories at EBI are fully equipped with a mix of high-precision mechanical and electronic pipettes. Pipette training will be led by Gilson liquid handling experts. In addition to training, future scientists can participate in site visits, see expert presentations, and participate in recruitment forums organized by the EBI.

"Our vision is to enable verifiable science and make lab life easier for researchers. EBI was the partner of choice to support Gilson in the development of new innovations. This new agreement strengthens our ties with EBI and its community and provides a mutually beneficial way to help scientists accelerate their discovery.", says Thierry Barthlen, Director Portfolio Management at Gilson S.A.S. and an EBI graduate.
