Drug discovery automation solutions

Drug Discovery Workflows

Drug discovery workflows require tools and technologies that can support a broad range of current and future applications including multiple microplate formats, liquid transfer volumes, and detection based read-out methods. The explorer G3 integrated HTS workstations are designed to fulfill these diverse needs.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
