We are a rapidly growing special interest group focused on
laboratory automation. Our membership consists of over
12,000 scientists and
engineers. We have Bay Area California, Chesapeake (Maryland, Virginia, Washington
D.C., and Delaware), Europe, Germany, Mid Atlantic, Midwest, New England,
Northwest, Philadelphia, San Diego, SouthEast, Upstate New York, and Texas chapters. A
majority of members are from the
pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry with others from the chemical, agriculture,
cosmetic, food, and specialty industries. Multiple regional meetings are held each year in which our
members’ experiences in automation are presented. Among the topics discussed are the uses
of laboratory automation in high throughput screening, drug discovery,
chemistry, chemical synthesis, compound purification, compound distribution, data
management, pharmaceutical dosage form sample preparation, dissolution testing, bioanalytical technology, chemical analysis, solid phase extraction, validation, and
product formulation. A typical meeting consists of a social period followed by two or
three presentations with discussions afterward. Posters are viewed during the social
period. Job openings may be posted or announced. Technology Exhibitions are held
to allow automation providers to present their products to the group. We are a non-profit
group. No dues are collected. To become a member, please register
at our new myLRIG site.
The LRIG mission is to provide and facilitate instruction for both
self-development and the benefit of the laboratory automation community.
To do this, we:
Provide physical and virtual meeting places for
scientists, engineers and academics interested in furthering their careers
and the field of laboratory
Facilitate communication among users and
Provide a platform to
encourage an open discussion of any new automation technologies that can be beneficial to
the laboratory automation community.
Share current best practices
and experiences in the design and implementation of laboratory automation.
Encourage members to actively
contribute, via the use of web and e-mail based bulletin boards (Discussion Mailing Lists).
