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

    CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH, England and MILPITAS, CA, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - 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
