High Throughput and Spectroscopy Center
The High Throughput and Spectroscopy Center (HTSRC) guides researchers in drug discovery by improving the efficiency of their bioassays, identifying compounds and genetic modulators of function, and in utilizing core technologies typically applied to biochemical analysis. The center has a collection of 389,728 compounds, automated liquid transfer devices, compound databases, and supports a broad diversity of assay development techniques, typically found in early drug discovery programs. (RRID:SCR_020985) The Center also has spectroscopic and calorimetric equipment for use in studies of the structure, function and interactions of biological and organic molecules. (RRID:SCR_020988)
Please contact our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in using our facility and booking time on our instruments.
The HTSRC provides scientific and technical support and access to instrumentation in the following areas:
- assay cascades used in drug discovery projects
- miniaturized assay development
- high throughput liquid handling
- high-throughput screening
- identifying tool compounds or lead compounds for drug discovery
- determination of structure activity relationships/medicinal chemistry efforts
- measuring the kinetics and thermodynamics of biomolecular interactions
Initiating a project with us
If you are interested in setting up an HTS/drug discovery project or utilizing our spectroscopic instruments please contact email@example.com. Assay development and screening typically require a significant financial and time commitment and advance discussions are needed to prepare for the project. This resource center is a shared facility supported by Weill-Cornell Medical College and Rockefeller University, and we welcome clients from those institutions. Due to a high demand for our services, we can accept projects from outside institutions only on a case-by-case basis. The HTSRC does not currently support research in conjunction with for-profit entities.
