Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) and phage display are both techniques that are well suited to high-throughput environments. In particular, phage display has found utility in antibody production. SPR has been explored as a means of substantially reducing the time and number of steps required for phage antibody isolation, while simultaneously providing kinetics and affinity information that are the hallmarks of the SPR technique.

Data is at the crux of today’s biological research and the potential of big data in scientific research is huge. To ensure successful and productive research and development, pharmaceutical and life science companies must invest more in solutions that support the early preclinical phases of the drug discovery process to help researchers better understand the biology of diseases.

Advances in technology are pushing the limits of sample throughput for qPCR, ELISAs, and many other core biological assays. This has the potential to greatly improve lab efficiency but also create process bottlenecks if not managed correctly. With the proper tools, scientists can tackle the greater number of samples and the levels of repetition this sample processing requires, while ensuring reproducibility of their results.
