Assays for Developing Targeted Therapeutics

Creative solutions for selecting and optimizing experimental approaches



Developing therapeutic agents that improve human health depends on selecting and implementing multiple reliable biological assays. This choice depends on the reagents and instruments available, reaction conditions, the signals measured, and the statistical models used for analysis. All of these can influence assay outcomes.

Download this handbook from LI-COR Biosciences to learn about key assays that answer vital questions related to therapeutics and virus research studies, including Western blotting, cell-based assays, protein profiling, tissue section microscopy, and in vivo and ex vivo imaging.
