Functional Assays and Assay Development

We offer our experience in Functional Assays and Assay Development for detailed mechanistic studies of a target protein, bioanalytical measurments and high-throughput screening. Since we thoroughly characterize the materials for which an assay is developed, our assays have maximized signal windows, low variability and are economical. These assays can have diverse applications such as analysis of enzyme activities, small molecule binding to proteins, protein-protein interactions and nucleic acid-protein interactions. In addition, we offer our services for outsourcing your assays or mechanistic studies.
