Assay Service

Current drug development strategies can be costly and too often experience high failure rates in later stages of development. Accordingly, cell-based assays are important tools to screen new drug candidates before moving to expensive animal models testing. Our seasoned assay experts are dedicated to accelerating your screening capabilities. Save valuable time for your research with our assay service by outsourcing time-consuming workflows to us.

Main Advantages of trenzyme’s Assay Service

Pharmaceutical companies utilize a variety of ways for drug discovery. In the past, a large number of compounds have been tested in high-throughput biochemical assays. However, the complexity of disease backgrounds raised the need for more physiological systems, increasing the use of cell-based assays to predict the response of the organism. trenzyme is specialized in cell-based assays using various cell lines and up-to-date technologies. Our highly skilled experts are capable of developing custom cell-based assays and producing reliable results to help you accelerate your screening capabilities. Furthermore, together with our stem cell experts, complex predictive and translational in vitro assays can be combined to highly physiological human stem cell-derived cell types, enabling advanced compound testing solutions.

Assay Service FAQs

What techniques do you use to measure endpoints?

We use a wide range of techniques to measure endpoints, e.g. FACS, Immunostaining, ELISA, Western blot and qPCR.

Based on which cell line types can you develop assays?

Our scientific experts can develop assays based on basic cell lines, customized cell lines or iPSC-derived cell types. For this, we use our in-house differentiation protocols with cardiomyocytes, hepatocyte-like cells or neurons for your analysis. Alternatively, you can provide us with your protocol so that after the technology transfer, our experts perform the work using this protocol internally at trenzyme.

Is it possible to order both, assay development and subsequent analysis of compounds?

Yes, our assay experts are delighted to develop an assay according to your needs prior to compound analysis.
