SELECTBIO's 3rd Annual Advances in Automation & Robotics  conference will cover robotics in biobanking, drug discovery & development and aspects of compound management.

With a demand in biobanking for high quality specimens, part of this track will explore preparation techniques of extracted cellular material and human biological specimens in order to obtain accurate, reliable and standardised data. An important part of drug discovery is managing compound libraries efficiently, with ever increasing costs and challenges in sample storage, this conference will discuss problems and highlight solutions. Also, we will present the most up-to-date approaches for robotics as well as automation as they are being deployed in the drug discovery and development organizations worldwide. The presentations in this conference track will complement the exhibits showcasing relevant vendors and products in this space.

Running alongside the Advances in Automation & Robotics conference will be the ELA exhibition, covering the latest technological advances and associated services from leading solution providers within this field. Registered delegates will also have access to the following co-located conference tracks, ensuring a cost effective trip: Advances in NGS & Big Data, High Content Analysis, Advances in Cellular Assays & Cell Culture and Advances in qPCR & dPCR.


Agenda Topics:
•    Automated Systems for Compound Storage & Management
•    Automation and Robotics in Analytical Laboratories
•    Robotics in Biobanking & Beyond
•    Robotics in Drug Discovery & Development

You can also present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!
Poster Submission Deadline: 02 May 2014

Early Bird – register by 2 April 2014
