Biochemical Assays

“We have broad expertise in developing both commercial and novel assay systems using a wide variety of technologies.”

Our platforms enable us to work with a variety of different targets including GPCRs, enzymes (including kinases, proteases, metabolic and pathway enzymes, RTKs), protein-protein interactions and epigenetic targets.

We employ a variety of different techniques, including:

  • Binding assays using both fluorescent and radio labelled ligands
  • Direct detection and enzyme-coupled assay systems
  • Fluorescent intensity [FI], Fluorescent resonance energy transfer [FRET], time-resolved FRET [TR-FRET] and fluorescence polarisation (FP)
  • Luminescence, bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET)
  • Alpha Screen technology
  • ELISA based assays
