Our expertise and productivity encompasses:

Molecular Biology

Genomics and Proteomics

Target Validation

Our own Lead Generation Libraries

Automated Screening

Drug Discovery

Cell Biology

In vitro and ex vivo models

The list opposite gives a selection of therapeutic areas in which we have an interest and expertise, although this is by no means exhaustive. It serves as a basis for discussion in the design of modular client-driven projects.

Some of our clients contract us to undertake whole preclinical research projects, others utilise our services in specific ad hoc areas.
