A High Throughput Approach to Delivering Compounds to Evolving Drug Discovery Departments

As the demand for compounds used in Pharmaceutical Discovery continues to escalate, manual dispensing of compounds is no longer capable of keeping pace. The use of pre-configured plates of compounds solvated in DMSO lends itself to high-throughput automation, but is limited by its inability to easily support cherry-picking of individual compounds, especially when servicing requests containing large numbers of items, and the need to store solvated compounds frozen to extend shelf-life to reasonable durations requires undesirable freeze-thaw-freeze cycles for plate replication with this approach. In this presentation, Robert Schmitt, Manager, Molecular Services, GPRD Advanced Technology at Abbott Laboratories discusses how Abbott has addressed these issues.
