“Recipharm has worked with Labman for around 15 years. We first approached them when we were looking to automate a very manual process in our laboratory. The systems Labman delivered to us have been in daily use ever since and have been so reliable that we’re now coming to the end of a project to replace those system with new, improved systems, again, from Labman.”
