Not familiar with LRIG? Well check it out here:

LRIG – Laboratory and Robotics Integration Group

Robotics and Research - The plan is to re-focus the group on Laboratory Automation and Life Sciences, not simply just robotics. LRIG was originally started to allow the exchange of ideas regarding complex robotics integration. It was costly and timely to get various pieces of equipment to “speak” to each other. That is not the case anymore, so an additional focus on life sciences, as well as streamlining processes makes sense.  In addition, the rekindled LRIG would allow researchers to:
•    Network with people from area Companies, Government Agencies, and Universities
•    Learn about new products and ideas
•    Provide researchers with a local forum to give preliminary presentations.


If you have any questions, let us know.


And remember, please invite your colleagues!




The LRIG Interim Committee:

Judy, Liza, Scott, Tom, and EJ
