High Throughput Screening: An Insider's Guide to Outsourcing, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - In this webinar, industry expert David Cronk, Director of Hit Discovery at Charles River Laboratories, will provide an overview of high throughput screening process from assay development through to the final data package by exploring examples of successful screening programs conducted at Charles River Laboratories.

High throughput screening (HTS) is an established means to identify starting points in the drug discovery process. As a significant investment is necessary to undertake high throughput screening efficiently, screening is increasingly being outsourced by researchers in the not-for-profit, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. Access to high throughput screening expertise and technology without the need to implement in-house compound libraries and the required screening and data handling platforms has proven effective at reducing operational and infrastructure costs.

During the course of the discussion, Cronk will describe various assay options in common use and whether highly miniaturized and/or automated platforms are applicable in all situations. Drilling into the details common to these successful programs will reveal insights on points to consider and questions to ask when considering different labs to work with on projects.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Explain the screening process from assay development to final data package
  • Describe assay options and which platforms are applicable for different types of projects
  • Provide insight on key points to consider when outsourcing
