Screening Unit

(webpage under development)


At the screening unit we have a range of instruments, library resources and assay services suitable for different user needs, from small-scale hit validation and characterisation to large-scale screens. In addition, our affiliated groups can  offer virtual screening, hit optimisation and medicinal chemistry services.

Assays range from simple plate-reader methods to high-content analysis and high-throughput microscopy with automated imagers fully integrated with automated cell incubator, thermostatted plate stacks and fluidics.
