ACD maintains state of the art laboratory suites that are function specific and physically isolated from each other. This encourages an efficient workflow and prevents the unwanted introduction of potentially contaminating materials or reagents between suites. Our molecular biology facility is equipped to handle all aspects of gene isolation (or synthesis), modification, and expression in either prokaryotic or eukaryotic systems. Once constructed, the appropriate reagents are transferred to our tissue culture suite for production of the corresponding cell-based assay system(s). Finally, the assays are transferred to our screening facilities, where we validate their performance and long-term stability prior to incorporating them into our ever growing panel of assays.
