2018 SLAS Americas Sample Management Symposium: Managing Samples from Bench to Clinic. With a program curated by practising sample management experts, this event will impart the latest education, case studies and best practice in sample management, with a focus on drug discovery processes.
Trends that will be addressed at the Symposium include:
- The rules of sample storage and management of samples are being rewritten — biological compounds and samples require the same attention and care previously paid only to small molecule libraries.
- Sample management groups increasingly support a growing array of human disease relevant assays and models.
- Quality programs and regulatory awareness are necessary when handling and providing samples in support of clinical studies and regulated bioanalysis.
- Ever-growing collaboration between academic, government and commercial institutions is forcing an increased emphasis on best practices for sharing samples.
