Equipments Details


The Bioactivity Screening Unit provides access to instrumentation and technologies amenable for a wide range of applications in drug discovery, chemical biology and related research fields. Our instrumentation cover automated liquid handling and various detection technologies, allowing flexible design and use of bioassays from biochemical to complex cell-based assays. We also offer guidance in assay selection, development and validation, HTS and follow-up assays. The unit is a member of the Drug Discovery and Chemical Biology (DDCB) network, a national infrastructure platform supported by Biocenter Finland.
