Custom and Bespoke Assays

We offer bespoke assay-development services complemented by our foundational expertise in cell biology and imaging for therapeutics discovery programs. We have expertise in indications spanning oncology, neuroscience, immunology, neurodegeneration, inflammation, and more. These custom / bespoke assays are developed to your specifications and implemented to identify or optimize your lead compounds. We pride ourselves in our speed; for bespoke assays, we aim to develop and validate an assay within 4-weeks of receiving a purchase order from a client.


Our assays are equally valuable for testing small molecules or biologics, including small molecules, peptides, PROTACs, gene-therapies, cell therapies, and beyond.


We offer a range of cell types to help move projects from bench to bedside, including immortalized and cancer cell lines selected for their authenticity; primary cells, including human and rodent cells; human iPSC-derived cell types allowing you to explore disease biology at the cellular level (and create any cell types from iPSCs derived from patients with genetic diseases or healthy donors), as well as 2D and 3D models allowing you to mimic the microenvironment of tissues in vitro, such as spheroids and organoids, to support the research of advanced therapies and diagnostics.

Services Offered


Microscopy & High-Content Imaging

We specialize in offering cutting-edge microscopy and high-content imaging services, including bespoke assay development, validation, and implementation; 384-well and 96-well formats; and endpoint, time-course, and time-lapse assays. Our team of highly skilled scientists has a deep understanding of the latest imaging technologies and can help you design assays that meet your specific pre-clinical research needs. We can help bring the hidden intricacies of your cells to light.


Cell-Based Imaging Assays

We offer top-notch cell-based imaging assays for all your pre-clinical research needs. Our specialized services include Target-Based Assay Development and Phenotypic Assay Development. With our expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to design and optimize assays to ensure the best results for your drug discovery program.


Cell-Based Assay Readouts

We provide disease-relevant cell-based assay readouts to meet your research needs in drug discovery and development. Our range of testing options include target-based and phenotypic readouts, immunofluorescence (ICC), FRET, cell painting, customized multiplexing of stains, and more. Our cell-based assay readouts offer several advantages over traditional biochemical assays, including: more physiologically relevant results, increased predictive power, interrogation of signaling pathways.


Custom Assay Development Projects

Our expertise spans a diverse range of custom assay development projects that can be tailored to your unique research needs, allowing you to identify and optimize lead compounds for progression into human clinical trials. From assessing drug effects through innovative readouts to creating specialized tools for phenotypic screening, our projects ensure precision and reliability.
