High-Throughput Solutions for Lead Candidate Discovery

New technologies allow researchers to scale up assays for cellular functions.




High-throughput screening is an effective method for identifying active compounds for therapeutics. Assays that evaluate changes in cellular functions are essential for characterizing test compounds and their potential pharmaceutical roles. A diverse array of fluorescence-based high-throughput assays measured by microscopy, flow cytometry, microplate readers, and high content screening allows researchers to monitor cell health read-outs and target specific cellular responses and cytotoxicity during drug discovery.
