Management of Chemical and Biological Samples for Screening Applications

by Mark Wigglesworth

Management of Chemical and Biological Samples for Screening Applications Synopsis

Filling an obvious gap in the scientific literature, this practice-oriented reference is the first to tie together the working knowledge of large screening centers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological field. It spans the entire fi eld of this emerging discipline, from compound acquisition to collection optimization for specific purposes, to technology and quality control. In so doing, it applies two decades of expertise gathered by several large pharmaceutical companies to current and future challenges in high-throughput screening. With its treatment of libraries of small molecules as well as biobanks containing biomolecules, microorganisms and tissue samples, this reference is universally applicable for any molecular scientist involved in a large screening program.

Management of Chemical and Biological Samples for Screening Applications Press Reviews

In the same vein, the chapters on new and enabling technologies, as well as how best to approach the options for outsourcing samples serve to provide a complete overview of all aspects of this discipline and complete the overall picture for the reader. (ChemBioChem, 1 January 2013) The book is a useful tool for any sample management organization, and will be particularly helpful as a guide for both updating the already existing structures and for planning future infrastructures dedicated to sample management.
