Funnily, SpaceX already launched a LabSat on Transporter-3, but it looks like it's just an unrelated, similarly named satellite.

A translation.

"SpaceX will launch into space in 2023 the Labsat IoT, the satellite developed by Copitec and the University of Palermo. The device will be put into Earth orbit in the second half of next year; will be used to measure soil conditions in rural areas and provide connectivity in mountains, rivers and other wilderness areas"

The press release only says that they will be launching in 2023 and does not specify the launch vehicle.

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220818005766/en/

"LuxSpace, a Luxembourg-based subsidiary of German headquartered satellite manufacturer OHB, will fly its Triton-X small satellite platform aboard a Vigoride Orbital Transfer Vehicle in 2023."

This article from March says the launch is planned for early 2023. So I'm guessing Transporter-7?

Good work, but that was saying basically “a year from now” and the key roadblock, late delivery of the spacecraft, may still be there. It was when I posted on August 7.
My guess remains that launch won’t occur until about a year after spacecraft delivery.

A new source has answered these questions authoritatively. 8)
MethaneSat is to launch on Transporter 9, which is scheduled for Oct 1, 2023.
Spacecraft delivery for instrument integration is expected in September, so there are still a few weeks of schedule margin.
And there is a path to follow-on instruments. :)

South Australian cubesat Kanyini has been delayed from Transporter 8 to Transporter 9. Source is the Australian Space Agency 14 November newsletter.

https://comms.industry.gov.au/link/id/zzzz6371dfc689a7f853Pzzzz61959d2ae4963291/page.html

SmartSat CRC, Myriota and Inovor Technologies joined forces to design and build South Australia's first ever satellite, Kanyini. Aimed to help with bushfire preparedness and monitoring inland and coastal water qualities, Kanyini has secured a launch date with a SpaceX transporter mission in October 2023.

Momentus vigoride will be carrying the Triton-x demo platform (hosted payload) for lux space.

Have you seen anything that says it will be on this particular flight?

Yes, the linkedin post says:
" Signature of the Triton-X micro-satellite Demo-1 in-orbit demonstration and validation mission that will bring the platform avionics and star tracker a step closer to commercialisation.

Launch planned for October 2023."

Momentus only has Transporter missions scheduled for 2023 as stated multiple times in their investor calls, so Triton-X is definetly flying on this particular flight.
