The Laboratory Automation 2017 virtual conference is available On-Demand

Laboratory automation is a multi-disciplinary approach benefiting from technologies in the lab that facilitate new and improved processes. Laboratory automation professionals are academic, industry and clinically-based researchers, scientists and engineers who research and develop new technologies to increase productivity, improve data quality, and reduce manual lab processes for more reliable results.

Laboratory automation encompasses different instruments and methodologies used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of research in the lab. Technology in present laboratories is imperative to timely research and data output. Laboratories focused on high-throughput screening, chemistry, automated clinical and analytical testing, diagnostics, biorepositories, and others, are more enabled due to advancements in laboratory automation.

 

Our topics for this years Lab Automation virtual conference include:

•    Automation and High-Throughput Technologies
•    Lab Automation and Screening  
•    Data Analysis and Informatics    
•    Micro- and Nanotechnologies    
•    Cellular Technologies

                                  Founder and CEO, One World Lab
                                  Biography
                                    I am Mike Simson, the Founder and CEO of One World Lab, specializing in antibody and reagent distribution to optimize market channels for life sciences research. Our goal is to simplify the antibody validation process by providing access to smaller aliquot sizes for testing and bringing multiple vendors together in a single place. After earning my degree in Biochemistry from Pepperdine, I worked for BioSource International, where I developed innovative, top of the line assay test kits and clinical diagnostic kits to understand disease and develop new drug therapies and medical diagnostics worldwide. Due to my extensive knowledge of BioSource's products and my strong communication skills, I was a perfect candidate to join the sales side of the organization. Within a year on the sales team, I grew the company's revenues from 30M to 80M, leading to its acquisition by Life Technologies in 2005. Following the acquisition, I joined the Life Technologies team as a Technical Sales Specialist in their Cellular Analysis business unit. Working for such a big player in the industry, I had the opportunity to not only gain an intimate insight into the full scientific workflow, but I also expanded my business knowledge and saw firsthand how successful organizations purchase and evaluate vendors. With my experience in science, business, and sales I decided to venture on my own and founded One World Lab in 2010. One World Lab addresses the bottleneck in antibody validation by bringing vendors together in a single place and offering low-cost, validation size aliquots for comparison. Since inception, we have grown from 3 manufacturers and 300 antibodies to providing over 60,000 antibodies from 30 different manufacturers. At One World Lab we orchestrate science into one world by making it simple and cost effective for researchers to receive the antibodies they need.

Sam is working towards making this a reality, he is a world leader in the field of human airway tissue engineering and has published many peer-reviewed papers on related research. After completing his Ph.D. in respiratory cell biology in the UK, Sam moved to Vancouver, BC for a Post-Doc at the UBC Centre for Heart + Lung Innovation at St. Paul's Hospital, where he spearheaded an inter-disciplinary, cross-Canada research project to build living 3-Dimensional human airway tissues. In 2013 Sam co-founded Aspect Biosystems with Konrad Walus, Simon Beyer and Tamer Mohamed. Aspect is a tissue engineering company with proprietary 3D-bioprinting technology capable of fabricating a variety of physiologically-relevant human tissues. Sam will be discussing Aspect's unique Lab-on-a-Printer technology, and will describe how this has the potential to revolutionise the fields of pharmaceutical drug development, disease research, and regenerative medicine by providing living human tissues on demand.
