Working with Us

Most Promega products do not have restrictions for commercial use; however, some are covered by a limited-use label license (LULL) that precludes commercial use. If you are interested in using these products in fee-for-service work, please contact us.

Solutions for Small Molecule Drug Discovery

Target identification

Target Identification

Chemoproteomic Method for On- and Off-Target Identification: This novel platform uses a photoreactive cleavable chloroalkane tag that can be attached to bioactive compounds. The tagged compounds, bound to their respective cellular targets, can then be isolated for identification by mass spectrometry.

Target validation

Target Validation

NanoBRET™ Target Engagement AssaysPutative targets identified by mass spectrometry can be readily verified using bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET). By exchanging the chloroalkane tag for a fluorophore, direct binding to the targets can be revealed through proximity of the fluorophore to a small NanoLuc® luciferase molecule, which is genetically fused to the putative target.
