"With the addition of the InCELL Pulse target engagement assays to our current target engagement portfolio, our customers now have complete control to develop their own cell-based binding assays, a capability many researchers need due to the unique compounds and targets that aren't offered by commercially available assays," stated Theresa Schaub, Sr. VP of Commercial Operations for DiscoverX.
InCELL Pulse target engagement assays allow for rapid creation of target engagement cell-based assays in less than 2 weeks after cloning. Todd R. Nelson, Ph.D., CEO of DiscoverX, stated, "Now customers can easily confirm compound cell entry and measure compound binding to their protein target in the native cellular environment even when functional assays are difficult or unavailable. DiscoverX remains committed to providing solutions and platforms for our customers to easily generate biologically relevant data for more confident drug discovery decisions."
