Drug Discovery

Success in drug discovery requires the capability to change your workflow dependent on the requirements of a drug. For companies like contract research organisations (CROs), this flexibility is crucial to operations, providing the ability to adapt and simultaneously run several different workflows.

At PAA, we understand the importance of automating small molecule drug discovery to meet the needs of our clients, and how it requires bringing together a variety of different technologies into high-throughput platforms for initial candidate selection. Read on to find out how we seamlessly integrate multiple instruments to deliver an efficient automated solution.
