Contract research organizations are companies that will perform specific in vitro and in vivo assays to testing the activity of compounds or therapies. Listed here are companies that the Shoichet lab has either worked with or considered working with in the past.

PDSP

The NIMH Psychoactive Drug Screening Program run by the Roth lab at UNC Chapel Hill, has been a close collaborator in performing in vitro binding and functional assays for almost all GPCR targets and and several transporters. If the PDSP has the assay, they are typically our first choice.

Eurofins Panlabs

Located in Taiwan, they have 1,350 assays covering the following target classes

  • Cytokine/Chemokine (41)
  • GPCR (270)
  • Ion Channel (41)
  • Kinase (154)
  • Nuclear Receptor (16)
  • Other (15)
  • Phosphatase (31)
  • Phosphodiesterase (19)
  • Protease (51)
  • Transporter (19)

They were used by both Henry Lin and Matthew O'Meara (2013-2014) and they gave reasonable results at reasonable prices.

Reaction Biology

Locate in Pennsylvania, they Reaction Biology specializes in Kinase assays and have a few epigenetic and other assays:

  • HMT/DNMT Assays
  • HDAC/HAT Assays
  • Bromodomain Assays
  • DUB Assays
  • Protease Assays
  • PDE Assays
  • CYP/hERG/Bcl/HSP90 Assays
  • Cell Assays
  • Phosphatase Assays

Their tag line is With the largest functional kinase activity assay panel in the industry, RBC provides kinase, epigenetic, and other profiling services to over 590 companies worldwide. RBC specializes in custom assay conditions, high quality reproducible data, and outstanding service.

  • ~104.00USD for 10 dose IC50 singlet curve (with 20% academic discount)
  • They have a minimum order of 300USD order
