High-Throughput Screening Methods for Drug Discovery
Over the years, the pharmaceutical industry has been experiencing a decline in research and development productivity which in turn worsens unmet clinical needs.
Due to the sheer number of possible compounds available, pharmaceutical companies have been adopting high-throughput screening (HTS) methods that can screen chemical libraries rapidly and inexpensively to identify the most promising compounds with activity against a specific biological target.
