The challenge

Characterising potential drug candidates using target-based assays is an essential tool during the hit-to-lead, lead optimisation and candidate selection stages of drug discovery. However, it can be challenging to:

  • Access the right equipment, expertise and assays required to deliver high-quality and relevant data when needed
  • Train internal staff on these instruments and assays, as this requires time, money and resource, and limits the range of assays you can perform
  • Make critical go/no-go decisions based on limited data, especially if milestone and budget pressures mean sacrificing data depth in favour of speed and cost

The Arctoris approach to compound characterisation via target-based assays

Our automated approach to target-based assays helps. Using our on-demand compound characterisation services, you can quickly generate high-quality, deep, reliable datasets without the need to invest in your own lab infrastructure.

We perform industry leading IC50 profiling using digitally controlled concentration response curve generation, together with detailed kinetic profiling, including measuring the association and dissociation rates and mechanism of inhibition as standard for continuous readout formats.

Our target-based assay services offer a wide range of benefits:


Total automation delivers speed, accuracy & quality

Our 24-hour robotic lab eliminates human error and variability, and enables robust, reproducible experiments that deliver high-quality data.

All workflows are precision-encoded so that each experiment is consistent, transparent and reproducible — enabling you to rapidly make critical go/no-go decisions.


Access a broad range of target-based assays

Rapidly utilise our wide range of target-based assays to generate the data you need without having to invest in expensive equipment or train in-house staff.

Our flexible platform can be instantly configured via the online portal to run any assay you choose, delivering your data in the fastest time possible.


Deep compound profiling and characterisation

We provide a high volume of data with each assay to generate rich, multidimensional data packages that include a wide range of parameters.

More and richer data means you gain deeper insight into the profile of your candidate, while maintaining exact control of experimental conditions.
