Advanced Cellular Dynamics is a leading provider of cutting edge cell-based assay panel technologies and services to the life sciences community. At ACD, we believe that cells provide the ideal context for the discovery of biomedically relevant biological and chemical entities. The ability to develop safe and effective entities that manipulate the dynamics of a targeted protein, while avoiding unintended cellular side-effects, is of great importance to drug discovery researchers worldwide. ACD was established to meet this need by developing and deploying cell-based assay panels that encompass broad representations of pharmaceutically relevant gene families; starting with the kinases. ACD’s cell-based assays allow unprecedented examination of a compound’s functional specificity, enabling the development of highly selective and well-characterized drugs that will speed your drug discovery efforts and help you navigate around previously unforeseeable side effects.
