This select and diverse collection of scientists, academicians, business leaders and students from around the globe benefitted from an extensive lineup of education, new production information, and opportunities to connect with peers interested in charting the future of laboratory science and technology.
As is the SLAS tradition, a host of distinctive awards were recognized at SLAS2015:

296 companies participated in the SLAS2015 Exhibition, 61 of which submitted new products to be considered for the SLAS2015 New Product Award. The winners included:
