Peakdale Molecular Ltd. Launches AssayReady4U(TM) in Collaboration With ChemPrintCo LLC


8/27/2008 7:29:51 AM

CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH, England and MILPITAS, California, August 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Peakdale Molecular Ltd (CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH, UK) a leading provider in specialist chemistry services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, and ChemPrintCo LLC (MILPITAS, CA, USA), a unique and cost-effective provider of products and systems for the biotechnology industry, today announce the launch of AssayReady4U(TM).

AssayReady4U(TM) is an online based storefront which allows drug discovery researchers the ability to search, design and select compounds from a live physical collection of screening compounds. Then, using additional options, build their final assay by selecting the exact amount and concentration required to perform their own unique experiments.

The final customer-selected compounds are cleanly and accurately dispensed into SBS standard well plates of the customer's choosing using ChemPrintCo's sophisticated and proprietary hydro-acoustic technologies. Each AssayReady4U plate is sealed in an argon environment and then vacuum-sealed in a moisture barrier bag and placed inside a temperature-controlled pack for shipment. All orders are shipped from stock within 24 hours of completion using a commercial carrier. Upon receipt, the customer adds an appropriate amount of solvent to reach the desired test concentration.

Peakdale's collection is fundamentally rich in novel, GPCR-targeted compounds. All compounds in the collection are selected for their applicability to GPCR research. Well-recognized ligand features are combined with proprietary scaffolds and monomers to produce a set of screening compounds for GPCR hit discovery.

Glenn Killingworth, Director of Business Development at Peakdale said: "I am excited that we have built this collaboration in order to reach the smaller drug-research groups who don't want to build assets to store, handle and plate compounds, but just want to receive ready-to-screen assays from a high quality collection, in exactly the format that they need to perform their drug discovery work."

Peakdale's Director of Technology Paul Doyle said: "This represents an exciting new technology that allows a much broader base of researchers to access the world of diverse compounds in a cost effective manner."

Adding to this, ChemPrintCo's Vice President of Sales Ron Jones said: "The AssayReady4U(TM) products will be offered via an innovative web-based one-stop shopping storefront. The researchers will effortlessly select compounds, assay test concentration, plate format, plate manufacturer and controls with a few clicks of a mouse thus optimizing their valuable time for research."

About Peakdale Molecular

Peakdale Molecular was founded in 1992. Today the company's customers include the majority of the major global pharmaceutical businesses and a rapidly growing base of biotechnology companies worldwide. Peakdale's teams of chemists combine experience in pharmaceutical R&D, medicinal chemistry, parallel synthesis, process development and fine chemicals to deliver unique chemistry solutions to a range of drug discovery challenges. Peakdale has growing capabilities in computational chemistry, analytical chemistry and ADME screening.

The application of less commonly used chemistry, including high temperature/pressure reactions, proprietary heterocyclic chemistry and nucleoside synthesis, enables Peakdale's chemists to generate unique compounds for drug discovery. Peakdale operates in several distinct markets providing novel screening compounds, targeted screening libraries, catalogue intermediates, custom synthesis and contract research.
