Peakdale Molecular has launched AssayReady4U(TM) an online based storefront which allows drug discovery researchers the ability to search, design and select compounds from a live physical collection of screening compounds in collaboration with ChemPrintCo LLC .

The final customer-selected compounds are cleanly and accurately dispensed into SBS standard well plates of the customer's choosing using ChemPrintCo's sophisticated and proprietary hydro-acoustic technologies. Each AssayReady4U plate is sealed in an argon environment and then vacuum-sealed in a moisture barrier bag and placed inside a temperature-controlled pack for shipment. All orders are shipped from stock within 24 hours of completion using a commercial carrier. Upon receipt, the customer adds an appropriate amount of solvent to reach the desired test concentration.

Peakdale's collection is fundamentally rich in novel, GPCR-targeted compounds. All compounds in the collection are selected for their applicability to GPCR research. Well-recognized ligand features are combined with proprietary scaffolds and monomers to produce a set of screening compounds for GPCR hit discovery.

Glenn Killingworth, Director of Business Development at Peakdale said: "I am excited that we have built this collaboration in order to reach the smaller drug-research groups who don't want to build assets to store, handle and plate compounds, but just want to receive ready-to-screen assays from a high quality collection, in exactly the format that they need to perform their drug discovery work."

Peakdale's Director of Technology Paul Doyle said: "This represents an exciting new technology that allows a much broader base of researchers to access the world of diverse compounds in a cost effective manner."

Adding to this, ChemPrintCo's Vice President of Sales Ron Jones said: "The AssayReady4U(TM) products will be offered via an innovative web-based one-stop shopping storefront. The researchers will effortlessly select compounds, assay test concentration, plate format, plate manufacturer and controls with a few clicks of a mouse thus optimizing their valuable time for research."
