CRO Case Study
Solutions for Small Molecule Drug Discovery
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.
NanoBRET™ Target Engagement Assays: Putative 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.
Accelerate your small molecule drug discovery process with a broad portfolio of high throughput-compatible biochemical and cell-based assays.
Lead Optimization and Validation
Easy to use assays provide a comprehensive assessment of cell health state in multiple model systems and sample types, including 3D microtissues, primary cells, and stem cells. Whether your target of interest is a kinase, GPCR or a disease-relevant signaling pathway, our sensitive, target-specific assays for lead compound optimization and validation can help.
