Biochemical and Cellular Assays

Biochemical and Cellular Assays


Biochemical and cellular pharmacology teams develop and validate assays to support research across drug discovery and development. These assays range from discovery approaches with high sample throughput to high-content analysis to gain an understanding of biological response both in vitro and in vivo. Show more

The design, validation, and implementation of assays that are sensitive and robust are vital for drug discovery, development, and testing during manufacturing. The types of assays and screens developed will depend on many factors such as the nature of a drug candidate and its putative action(s), the classes of the discovery and testing systems, and the manufacturing processes.
