Hotel Description

PPSC provides services in the field of assay development and high throughput screening. We have a 300.000 compound library including known drugs and reference compounds for validation purposes.

Also available is our open access lab where full automation (e.g. pipetting robots, multi-mode plate readers, FLIPR and high content analysis) is available to perform experiments in microtitre plates efficiently.

PPSC is the central screening site for the European Lead Factory.
