Land O’ Lakes 22nd Annual Bioanalytical Conference

5 Presentations 5 Sections



The 22nd Annual Land O’ Lakes Bioanalytical Conference presented a unique look at what we had to learn very quickly in 2020 and 2021 in order to rise to the scientific and logistical challenges brought to us by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pharmaceutical industry rose to the challenge of producing vaccines and treatments at a pace we never thought possible. Bioanalytical laboratories worldwide played a significant role in developing these therapies to fight COVID-19 while also continuing to efficiently operate and bring new life saving therapies for the many other diseases of the world. In the three-day conference we looked at how many of the key advancements occurred, how they are being applied and what we see in the future of Bioanalysis beyond the pandemic. The way we think and operate has forever been changed and we offered a  look at these changes to reflect and learn and look forward.
