Welcome to the web site of the Analytical, Life Science & Diagnostics Association – ALDA.
We recently changed our name from ALSSA – Analytical & Life Science Systems Association – following expansion of our scope to include diagnostics and molecular diagnostics.
We are the industry trade association for companies that develop and supply life science, analytical and diagnostic products, services and technologies. These products, services and technologies include instrumentation, reagents, test kits and software and are used to conduct research, discovery, testing and diagnostics in a wide range of applications including pharma, biotech, ag-bio, food safety, personalized medicine and diagnostics, and in life science, academic and government research.
We are in the process of developing a new logo and revising our web site to reflect our new name and expanded focus. We appreciate your patience – while the content is up-to-date, much of the site will reflect our former name until the revision occurs – probably during the first quarter of 2013.
“Illumina has been a member of ALDA since shortly after the company was founded in 1998. As we have grown in a market where technologies are rapidly evolving, we have found the ALDA meetings and the many opportunities for dialogue with other companies and senior executives to be an invaluable benefit of the association.”
