Efficiency meets innovation to bring a new
level of functionality to your labs and libraries
The 13th Compound & Sample Management Summit will bring together a multitude of early discovery experts, coming from big pharma and small, in order to re-define their role in driving scientific advancement through seamless management of 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 can reach new heights.
This time we're expanding our focus to outline the specific challenges of different sized pharma research laboratories and libraries. We're zeroing-in on presenting best-in-class strategies that early discovery stakeholders are using in order to optimize internal and external competencies toward higher volume discoveries-- regardless of your resources.
