Forecasting the Future of a Changing Field
Join us for the 12th year of the most comprehensive event on Compound & Sample Management in the US!
Drive scientific advancement through efficient management of your vast, diverse, and ever-changing compound libraries and biobanks.
As our investigators fine tune their skills in identifying new assays that can lead to the emergence of breakthrough medicines, they must be able to swiftly access and use the compounds needed for development. Lapses in supply, compromised quality, and siloed data all lead to delays in new drugs getting to the patients’ who need them. Through empowering a cross-functional, global team to effectively manage lab operations from sample management to data integrity to advanced automation, the drug discovery process will reach new heights.
We have expanded our focus in 2016 to address the most pressing topics in compound AND biological sample management. While the two sides often share challenges, it is important to recognize key synergies and differences in order to take the most proactive management approach.
