Molecular Devices Features FLIPR 1536-well Application in High-throughput Screening in Educational Webinar
Date:10/2/2018

Through this webinar, sponsored by Molecular Devices, participants will learn tips and best practices for 1536-well FLIPR screening. They will also learn the role of calcium kinetics in cardiac safety testing. The speakers for this event will be Dr. Helma Van Den Hurk, the chief operations officer at PPSC Biography; and Tsang Wai Lam, an assay development scientist at PPSC.

They will discuss how high-throughput screening for the European Lead Factory (ELF) has performed at Pivot Park Screening Centre (PPSC) and review 72 HTS campaigns performed in the past five years on a compound library that has grown from 320,000 to 450,000 compounds.

The screens cover a wide range of target classes including more demanding cellular targets like ion channels and protein-protein interactions. As an example of one of the ELF screening campaigns we will present the results of a high throughput screening to identify selective agonists for an ion channel using Molecular Devices Fluorimetric Imaging Plate Reader (FLIPR).

In this project, the assay was based on stable cell lines expressing the ion channel. The assay was successfully miniaturized to 1536-well format using a Molecular Devices standard membrane potential dye. The screening cascade will be presented.

Other highly important aspect for effective drug development is the assessment of cardiac safety and efficacy of drug candidates. Hence, there is a pressing need for in vitro screening methods to detect cardioactive effects of compounds early in the drug discovery process.

LabRoots will host the event October 23, 2018; the webinar will begin at 7 a.m. PDT, 10 a.m. EDT. To learn more about this event and the speakers, discover the continuing education credits that will be offered, or to register for free, click here.
