Small Molecule Screening

Small molecule microarray for compound library screening

Screening compounds for hit identification is the first stage of small molecules drug discovery.  Compound libraries can range from tens of thousands to billions of unique molecules and as such, methods for rapid compound library screening are in high demand by the pharmaceutical industry.

High-throughput screening has been pivotal to drug discovery but requires expensive equipment.  Small molecule arrays offer a cost-effective solution for ligand discovery and are being utilised by academics and pharma groups worldwide.



Application note

Arrayjet have developed a method for printing high-density small molecules arrays with an optimised DMSO buffer.  This method enables the high-throughput screening (HTS) of large compound libraries, using without the need for the cost-preventative financial outlay associated with HTS robots.
