Horizon Discovery Group plc has announced that its Horizon CombinatoRx division has been contracted by a top ten pharma company to profile a lead oncology asset. Under the terms of the agreement, Horizon CombinatoRx will be paid approximately USD $750,000 (GBP £469,000) for work to be completed within a five month period.
Horizon CombinatoRx provides its partners access to the unique cHTS platform and Chalice™ analytics software, which enable the screening and analysis of thousands of complementary drug combinations. Combined with Horizon’s GENESIS™ (rAAV, CRISPR and ZFN) gene editing platform and X-MAN™ isogenic cell line technology, Horizon CombinatoRx offers services including novel phenotypic cell-based screens with compound siRNA, shRNA and sgRNA (for CRISPR based screening) libraries.
Horizon completed the acquisition of the CombinatoRx service business and assets from Zalicus Inc. in June 2014.
