Lakhesys™

Lákhesis in ancient Greek religion, was the middle of the Three Fates, or Moirai; the others were her sisters, Clotho and Atropos. Normally seen clothed in white, Lákhesis is the measurer of the thread spun on Clotho’s spindle, and determines destiny, or thread of life. 
In the product name, the ending -sys (instead of -sis) refers to the fact that the Lakhesys™ Benchtop Cell Factory represents a system for cell therapy manufacturing.

Phonetic spelling: ˈlækɪsɪs/ LAK-iss-iss
