About LRIG Canada

The Laboratory Robotics & Innovation Group (LRIG), is a rapidly growing global special interest group focused on laboratory automation. Our membership consists of over 12,000 scientists and engineers from around the world. 

LRIG Canada was incorporated in July 2022 and thanks to your support our group is growing fast.

As a global organization, LRIG has been focusing on providing physical and virtual meeting spaces for scientists, engineers, and academics interested in furthering their careers in the field of Laboratory Automation. 
As well as facilitating the communication and interaction between users and laboratory automation providers. LRIG is impacting the industry by bringing together experts in different areas of science and innovation in laboratory equipment, robotics, and automation.

A majority of our members are from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology 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, biobanking, combinatorial chemistry, chemical synthesis, compound purification, compound distribution, data management, pharmaceutical dosage for sample preparation, dissolution testing, bioanalytical technology, chemical analysis, solid phase extraction, validation, and product formulation. 

We are excited to bring this mission to Canada and our local laboratory automation community. Our social events, meetings, and networking gatherings will be a platform where we can connect with peers, share best practices of lab automation and become a space for career growth.

LRIG is a non-profit group with an educational mission. All events are free, and no membership dues are collected.
