An annual conference and exhibition about laboratory automation for the Society for Laboratory Automation & Screening (SLAS)
"PFAS are in the news across the states, and they have become a growing topic of discussion amongst environmental practitioners, at all levels of regulatory agencies, and they are certainly a hot topic at conferences. With a new administration and a new Congress, 2021 issued in a revised PFAS Roadmap, an NDAA full of PFAS legislation, and a lot on the docket for 2022. The states have continued to forge their own paths forward with how to address PFAS contamination. And with rapidly evolving science and technologies there is an almost immeasurable amount of developments to keep track of.
In the spirit of the season, we have cataloged notable actions that transpired in 2021 and what the prospects for 2022 look like as we kick off the New Year. We will address the details specific to each of the items listed below, and what they might mean to you."
An annual multi-conference on "theoretical advances and applications of information systems, artificial intelligence, signal processing, electronics and other engineering tools in knowledge areas related to biology and medicine" Note: As of May 2021, the venue has not been announced. But will be in Vienna, Austria.

"There are four risk groups and four biosafety levels which unfortunately can lead lab workers to equate the two terms. Although the two are related, the missing link between them is a risk assessment. We will start out by defining risk groups and a discussion of how to use them as a starting point to determine the risk of an infectious agent. Through exploration of the various additional factors that should be considered for this type of work we will get to an understanding of the risks involved and the methods that are employed to mitigate those risks. It is this collection of controls that we define as biosafety levels."

"The goal of this seminar is to provide an understanding of the current issues in antifungal resistance. From the public health side this includes the recent emergence of antifungal resistance organisms such as Candida auris, azole-resistant Candida parapsilosis, and azole-resistant Aspergillus fumigatus. From the clinical side this includes understanding currently available antifungal susceptibility testing (AFST) approaches, what clinical situations warrant susceptibility testing and when testing can provide actionable information to drive patient care."
"While archival skills training is inevitable most digital specialists can increase their literacies through workshops, self-didactic methods, or formal certification and degree programs. Because archives are so unique, literacy pedagogy frameworks may vary from one institution to the next but critical literacies such as archival (and digital archival), data, visual, and computer literacies will lend consistency to such frameworks and methods. This webinar addresses two joint concerns: among visualization experts, the need to understand archival description practices; and among archivists, to prepare metadata for visualization. While it focuses on the visualization of archival data, it also aims to inform methods already in use by digital archivists, data scientists, and others interested in visualizing archival collections."
"Cannabis pesticide testing is challenging due to the variety of pesticides analyzed, low level detection expectations and the challenging matrix that cannabis and cannabis-infused products often present. In this webinar, Dr. Dhandapani will be presenting advances in GC manufacturing technology that can help to solve separation challenges such as analyte breakdown, peak shape, sensitivity and column bleed issues in pesticide analysis.
Dr. Kirk Jensen will present on the capabilities of the JMS-TQ4000GC triple-quadrupole GC-MS/MS and the patented short collision cell technology contained therein, followed by its performance for testing cannabis samples for pesticide content. Sample workflow, instrument parameters, and results from sample testing will also be covered."
