Southern Research’s Drug Discovery division maintains a state-of-the-art High-Throughput Screening (HTS) Center featuring advanced robotic equipment and a well-trained staff to ensure the highest quality of screening for collaborative and contracted research projects. The HTS Center maintains a collection of over one million compounds and has the capacity to run a wide variety of assay types. Our professional staff has in-depth experience and a demonstrated proficiency in transferring bench-top assays to the robotics platform and executing cell-based and biochemical screens. In addition to executing standard high-throughput screening assays, our research team is experienced in running yeast-based assays as well as assays that require BSL-2 or BSL-3 containment. The department also incorporates a team of scientists who perform secondary assays to support and drive lead generation efforts arising from HTS hits.
