Screening Support

​The HTCB can assist researchers with screening projects using a variety of assistance models. For occasional users the center can provide end to end support, starting with assay design and development, transitioning to full HTS campaigns, and concluding with data analysis and report generation.

​More advanced users with HTS-ready systems can be assisted to translate these screens to our platform, select appropriate compound libraries, and process output data to prioritize screening hits.

​Finally, users with extensive experience in HTS environments can obtain training to run the platform independently, reducing screening costs and permitting additional assay protocol optimization.


The HTCB offers a suite of standard high-throughput screens to both internal and external users at very competitive rates. These include antimicrobial assays against a range of clinically relevant bacterial pathogens, pure protein assays, and high-content cytological profiling assays against a set of human cancer cell lines.

If required these assays can be run as fee-for-service experiments using owner-generated compound code numbers so that your proprietary data remains secure and private. Data is stored in our online data management system, permitting easy access from anywhere in the world, but limiting access to your selected research team. Users can access only the data in their own project, meaning that you and only you have permission to view, analyze and download your screening results.
