On June 28, 2019, the New York-based chemical vendor BOC Sciences announces to update its high-throughput screening technology for researchers involved with lead discovery in the pharmaceutical industry.
Drug discovery and development is an extremely complex process, which involves the discovery of innovative active ingredients all the way to the launch of a finished product. It usually takes more than ten years to complete this process and is enormously costly. The discovery of lead compounds is the initial step that plays a pivotal role in the success of a drug development project.
“High-throughput screening technology is a method to screen candidate drugs that interact with targets from a large number of drug samples by using microplates-containing molecules and cells as carriers. Molecules containing microplates can be enzymes or receptors. Candidate drugs are screened for the exploration of the biological activity on the target or the overall cells,” says Mr. Barron Jones, the Marketing Chief of BOC Sciences. “In the process of high-throughput screening, inter-disciplinary expertise is needed, which encompasses pharmaceutical chemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, microbiology, mathematics and computer science.”
With rapid development in the last decade, high-throughput screening technology has become an important way to discover new drugs, covering a series of activities like hit identification, hit to lead, lead optimization, etc.
The high-throughput screening process usually involves the following steps:
• Preparation of samples and composite libraries
• The establishment of a method suitable for laboratory automation
• Configuration of robot workstations
• Data acquisition and processing
Advantaged by large high-throughput screening compound library and NMR and HPLC technology, BOC Sciences provides a wide range of screens on multiple platforms so as to obtain ideal products with high purity of high specificity. It continues to update its compound library to accommodate to new trends in this field. Meanwhile, technical and scientific advice from the initial stages of development to completion and data analysis is also available.
