Lab Automation Virtual Event Series 2017

Labroots is excited to present the 1st Annual Event in the Laboratory Automation Virtual Event Series!

Laboratory automation is a multi-disciplinary approach benefiting from technologies in the lab that facilitate new and improved processes. Laboratory automation professionals are academic, industry and clinically-based researchers, scientists and engineers who research and develop new technologies to increase productivity, improve data quality, and reduce manual lab processes for more reliable results.

Laboratory automation encompasses different instruments and methodologies used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research in the lab. Technology in present laboratories is imperative to timely research and data output. Laboratories focused on high-throughput screening, chemistry, automated clinical and analytical testing, diagnostics, biorepositories, and others, are more enabled due to advancements in laboratory automation.

 

Our topics for this years Lab Automation virtual conference included:

•    Automation and High-Throughput Technologies
•    Lab Automation and Screening  
•    Data Analysis and Informatics    
•    Micro- and Nanotechnologies    
•    Cellular Technologies
