Laboratory Automation 2021

Welcome to the 5th Annual Laboratory Automation Virtual Event; a free virtual conference for professionals interested in the most recent technologies for today’s labs. Lab automation is a multi-disciplinary approach benefiting from technologies in the lab that facilitate new and improved processes.

The technology present in laboratories is imperative to timely research and data output. This event will further the discussion of the advancements made regarding instrumentation and methodologies used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research in the lab.

This year's event includes the following tracks:

Microfluidic Technologies Enabling Automation

High Throughput Biology

  • Antibody Discovery

LIMS and Regulatory Compliance

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Like the 2020 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots' most popular T-shirts.

Call for Posters
Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Laboratory Automation & Informatics Virtual Event. Submit your abstract for free, here.

Continuing Education
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
