About Philochem’s ESAC platform and DNA-Encoded Chemistry technology

The proprietary ESAC platform and DNA-Encoded Chemistry technology were developed by Philochem scientists in collaboration with the group of Prof. Dario Neri at ETH Zurich during the past decade. These two powerful and complementary discovery technologies allow to screen up to billions small molecules compounds in a very fast and efficient manner, and to further optimize the hit compounds in a fully automatic, DNA-tagged, fragment-based drug discovery manner.
