High Content Analysis Roundtable

Issue 3 2009, Past issues / 29 May 2009 /

1. How significantly do you feel the Drug Discovery Process has benefited from the application of High Content Analysis techniques?

Anthony Davies: Since the mid 1990’s High-content analysis (HCA) has primarily been used in the later stages of the pre-clinical drug discovery process. However, as HCA techniques have developed and evolved, so has the role of this technology within the discovery process. Today HCA is integrated earlier in drug discovery, for example this technology is now widely utilised in target validation where contextual information obtained from cell based assays allows for better characterisation of biological mechanisms.
