The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) is an international professional society of academic, industry and government researchers as well as developers and providers of laboratory automation technology and tools. SLAS leads the pursuit of research excellence by offering tangible resources such as its international conferences and symposia, scientific publishing, and opportunities for continuing education, grants and scholarships, professional collaboration, networking and career advancement.
Biology, technology, engineering, research – no single aspect of life sciences is more important than the other, and the successful translation of discoveries and technologies requires a rich knowledge of each area. SLAS advances scientific innovation by providing education, information and professional development that unites researchers across disciplines.
