CryoXtract Instruments, LLC will be offering a podium presentation and exhibiting at the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) annual conference from January 24th-27th in San Diego. CryoXtract is also pleased to announce that their abstract was one of only 9 finalists selected for the SLAS Innovation Award. The $10,000 award is bestowed upon the podium presentation that is "exceedingly innovative and contributes to the exploration of technologies in the laboratory, exceeds a benchmark or milestone in screening or the lead discovery process, or demonstrates an advanced and integrated use of mature technologies." 

CryoXtract is being recognized for the work of Glenn Smith and Joe Fraone, the authors behind the presentation entitled "The Application of Automated Frozen Aliquotting Technology to the Bioanalysis of Labile Compounds." The work highlights the benefits of frozen aliquotting in regulated drug analysis and bioanalytical assays, and is the product of a collaborative study between GlaxoSmithKline in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina and CryoXtract. It will be presented during a podium presentation on January 26th at 3:30pm. The work will also be published in one of SLAS’s two peer reviewed journals, the Journal of Biomolecular Screening (JBS) and The Journal of Laboratory Automation (JALA), later in the year. The extended abstract is availalbe here.

 The SLAS conference brings together life science research professionals from all areas of the world, connecting researchers, technologists, students, academics and more. CryoXtract will be exhibiting its frozen aliquotting technology at booth #1752. To learn more about the conference and this prestigious acknowledgement, visit
