Automated Cell-based Assays: Novel tools overcome the barriers to drug discovery success

In this episode, we look at how commercial products and services are facilitating the automation of cell-based assays to advance drug discovery and accelerate the delivery of new medicines to patients. Cell-based assays are vital tools in modern drug discovery. Live cell cultures that replicate in vivo physiological conditions enable more reliable predictions about the safety and efficacy of drugs. Cellular assays have traditionally been complex and labour-intensive, however, automated technologies are now streamlining workflows as well as improving assay precision.
