Accelerate your process for identifying your most promising drug compounds, and enable your medicinal chemists to receive data faster with our cost-effective lead optimization services.
SelectScreen® Lead Optimization Services
SelectScreen® Lead Optimization Services offer drug discovery researchers a faster method for narrowing the selection of drug candidates for downstream selectivity profiling and further investigation.
Our in-house team can run biochemical and cellular assays to optimize drug potency and generate dose-response curves, identifying the compounds that cause the desired effect in your target of interest. Choose from our broad portfolio of assay technologies, or provide your own targets/assays and we can perform validation.
Data Delivery in Days
Lead optimization services offer an advantage over broader screening because they can deliver data quickly, typically in 3 to 5 days (depending on the assay), and at lower cost than large panel screens. This enables you to make chemistry decisions more rapidly and move leads forward.
|Broad profiling||Lead optimization|
|Number of targets/assays||Many||Few|
|Mode||Single point with dose-response curve follow-up||Dose-response curves|
|Submission schedule||On demand||Weekly schedule|
|Client commitment||On demand||6+ months|
|Turnaround time||Avg. 4 to 8 days||Avg. 2 to 5 days|
After leads are optimized, top drug candidates can be carried forward for selectivity profiling to determine specificity and downstream impact in preparation for possible future clinical testing.
