SAN DIEGO, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora Discovery announced today the acceptance of an additional Discovery System platform to a major Pharma customer. This marks the eighth Discovery System installed this year. The Discovery System is Aurora Discovery's latest modular automation platform providing high-throughput performance for bio-chemical and cell-based assays. The Discovery System leverages Aurora Discovery's miniaturized science technologies, including the Flying Reagent Dispenser (FRD), topology compensating Plate Reader (tcPR), and high-density 1536-well and 3456-well microplates.

"We are delighted to provide miniaturization science solutions to our customers," said Peter Coassin, President and Chief Technology Officer at Aurora Discovery. "The Discovery System enables a single scientist to screen an assay against over 100,000 compounds in a matter of hours and using less than 30 microplates. This savings in time and consumables accelerates the drug discovery process while providing Pharma significant savings."
