Design of Experiments for Assay Development and Optimization
Design of experiments (DoE) for drug discovery assays is a statistical and systematic approach used to optimize the experimental conditions and parameters in the drug discovery process. It involves strategically planning and conducting experiments to understand the relationship between multiple variables and their impact on the assay outcome. DoE helps identify critical factors and their optimal settings, allowing researchers to maximize the efficiency, reliability, and effectiveness of drug discovery assays. By using DoE methodologies, scientists can minimize experimental variability, reduce costs, and accelerate the development of new drugs. It plays a crucial role in optimizing assay conditions and improving the success rate of drug discovery efforts.
I.DOT Liquid Handling
The I.DOT liquid handler is a valuable tool that can support the Design of Experiments (DoE) process in drug discovery assays. It enables precise and controlled dispensing of small volumes of assay components without physical contact, minimizing the risk of contamination and improving experimental accuracy.
With the I.DOT dispenser, researchers can easily create gradients of concentrations and volumes of assay components, allowing them to systematically explore the impact of different variables on assay outcomes. This automated dispenser streamlines the DoE process by providing reliable and consistent dispensing, facilitating the optimization of experimental conditions and enhancing the efficiency and reproducibility of drug discovery assays.
