High throughput screening and high content screening in drug discovery
In drug development, HTS and HCS enable cost-effective and agile ways to discover new drugs, by utilizing robotics, image-based data analysis and liquid handling devices that together help quickly to conduct millions of chemical, genetic, or pharmacological tests. These tests are typically conducted on 96-, 384- or 1536-well microplates.
High throughput screening assays generate large data sets that help to identify the active compounds, antibodies, or genes that modulate a particular biomolecular pathway. High-quality data sets from HTS provides the starting point for the target identification in the drug discovery process. That is why, it is important to choose the right high-quality cell assays for further assay development and chemical compound testing.
GrowDex hydrogels' natural and animal-free features as well as the quality control manufacturing process supports reproducible assays without lot-to-lot variability. These make GrowDex hydrogels especially fitting for large-scale high throughput and high content screening assays in microtiter plates.
