Application note: GABAA Receptors

11 December 2018 | By

SB Drug Discovery shows the validation of fluorescence and automated electrophysiology assays designed to assess agonists, antagonists and allosteric modulators of these receptors, culminating in a high-throughput electrophysiology assay suited to assessing multiple GABAA receptor subtypes on a single assay plate.

Expert view: Three-dimensional cell cultures as predictive tools in early drug discovery

6 December 2018 | By

Three-dimensional cell cultures (spheroids, organoids) are becoming widely used as a new predictive tool in early drug discovery. The use of 3D cell cultures is believed to provide a more physiologically relevant response than monolayer (2D) cell cultures because they closely mimic the extracellular matrix and cell-cell interactions that occur…

PAINS management: an open source model to eliminate nuisance compounds

4 December 2018 | By

High-throughput screening (HTS) technologies have enabled the routine testing of millions of compounds towards the identification of novel β€˜hit’ molecules for therapeutic targets. Oftentimes in this drug discovery process, however, compounds that show promising activity in primary screens show no activity during subsequent hit qualification or progression efforts.

Application note: Enabling single-software multiple attribute methodology (MAM) for the assessment of biopharmaceutical product quality attributes

29 November 2018 | By , ,

Development and production of biopharmaceuticals is complex. Even minor impurities, or changes in attributes such as glycosylation or charge heterogeneity, can have a profound impact on the safety and efficacy of the final product. Traditionally, multiple analytical techniques have been required to assess the full range of biopharmaceutical product attributes.…
