High Throughput Screening Services
Here's a question that comes up once in a while in my e-mail. I've always worked for companies that are large enough to do all of their own high-throughput screening (with some exceptions for when we've tried out some technology that we don't have in-house, or not yet). But there are many smaller companies that contract out for some or all of their screening, and sometimes for some assay development as well beforehand.
So there are, naturally, plenty of third parties who will run screens for you, against their own compound collections or against something you bring them. A reader was just asking me if I had any favorites in this area myself, but I haven't had enough call to use these folks to have a useful opinion. So I think it would be worth hearing about experiences with these shops, good and bad. Keep the specific recommendations recent, if possible, but general advice and What Not to Do warnings are timeless. Any thoughts?
