Members and their companies, sell and market their products and services to research, product development scientists, manufacturing and quality control scientists, pharmaceutical, medical device & diagnostic companies, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.


SAMPS is the premier organization of all life science commercial professionals (sales, marketing, business development, client services, commercial operations, technical support, etc.) dedicated to selling and marketing to organizations that discover, develop, and manufacture pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical device, and diagnostic products and therapies.

  4. Member Involvement: SAMPS supports and encourages the active participation of all its members.
  5. Professional Development: SAMPS values professional development through networking, mentoring, education, and knowledge exchange.
