BioDuro’s Discovery Biology team has extensive experience in assay development and compound screening covering the major target classes and also areas of phenotypic functional assays. Operating in state-of-the-art laboratories, our scientists are fully equipped to provide a broad array of services that include in vitro biology support for small molecule drug discovery programs, cell line generation and protein production and customized biology services. These capabilities and services can be accessed as flexible stand-alone services on demand and can also be accessed as part of integrated drug discovery programs to meet the needs of different clients. For each project, we routinely generate project-relevant high-quality data in short turnaround times.
