-- The New York-based chemical supplier BOC Sciences, also one of the active players in early drug discovery, recently announces to enhance its one-stop compound screening platform, which is efficient, economical and systematic, aiming to help scientists fulfill their screening needs arising from drug R&D projects. Having more than 200 bioassays of various disease models both in vitro and in vivo, the platform's screening capacity is now enhanced and reaches almost 100,000 samples per day.
Screening activities are of particular importance in the endeavors either to define potential pharmacological targets or to identify novel targets of known bioactive natural products in their drug discovery projects. "Ever since we start our business in 2006, our screening library has been increasingly expanded. Currently there are over 200,000 small molecules," says a senior scientist from BOC Sciences.
In drug discovery, the importance of disease models is never over-emphasized. After the identification of potential drug compounds, which could be natural or chemically synthesized compounds, the next step is to specify their biological activity. But since it is impossible to do such test directly in the human body, researchers have to resort to disease models, which truthfully reflect the pathology of diseases and help to explore the activity and corresponding mechanism of the compounds. And at the same time, using disease models is also cost-effective, either at molecular, cell levels or at animal levels. "We now provides various bioassays for a wide range of research such as cancers, cardiovascular diseases, neural system diseases, reproductive system diseases, respiratory system disease, metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, etc. Based on these bioassays, our compound screening platform is more powerful and robust."
Being professional, diligent and responsible, BOC Sciences has obtained recognition and attention from its collaborators in both academia and industry over the past ten years.
