Clinical Ligand Assay Society Company Profile

18:22 EDT 19th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

MISSION The Clinical Ligand Assay Society mission is to establish and promote high standards in the science and application of ligand assay technology by encouraging research, educating practitioners, and fostering communication and cooperation among individuals in laboratories, in medicine, in academia and industry. In the last 30 years, ligand assay technology has exploded to encompass not only a variety of non-isotopic techniques besides the classical radioactive labeling one to quantitate immunoassays but also receptor assays and gene probe technology.

Specific goals of CLAS include: Maintenance of an organization concerned with the diagnostic, therapeutic and investigative use of ligand assays and related methods.
Improvement of the standards of ligand assay methods by promoting education, encouraging basic and clinical research and advancing the practice of ligand assay as applied to clinical laboratory diagnosis; biochemical research; diagnosis and therapy in veterinary sciences; applications in agricultural, environmental and industrial sciences.
Sponsoring of regional, national, and international meetings, scientific symposia, review courses, certification programs, workshops and publications to increase knowledge of ligand assay technology and its development and application.
Promotion of cooperation and mutual consultation among members working in laboratories, clinics, hospitals, educational institutions and industry.
