The DTU Screening Core (DTU-SCore), a subdivision of the Department of Chemistry, requires a High Throughput Screening (HTS) platform. The platform will be the main component of the everyday working schedule of DTU-SCore. The instruments that are a part of this platform and the platform it-self, will be used in collaboration with DK-OPENSCREEN, the Danish infrastructure for chemical biology.
The HTS Platform will be used for screening small molecules in different assay formats including bio-chemical, biophysical and cell-based assays, which will form the main working procedures of DTU-SCore. It will also be used in the production and copying of assay ready plates together with DK-OPENSCREEN. Both DK-OPENSCREEN and DTU-SCore require the capacity for supporting an in-creased number of projects and the ability to screen a larger number of compounds. Therefore an in-crease in automation for expanding the scope and efficiency of the program is necessary.
