For the last decade, SAMDI Tech’s assay solutions have been a game changer for drug discovery, mainly as the exclusive provider of the premier label-free and high-throughput SAMDI technology. This spotlight presentation describes how SAMDI Tech offers additional solutions beyond the SAMDI technology that have proven to be critical to ensure successful drug discovery projects for its partners and collaborators. In one example, we will describe how SAMDI Tech has grown to offer assay methodologies that go beyond label-free, including optical and radioactivity assays, to complement assay development and hit finding efforts. Next, we will present a case study where SAMDI Tech’s attention to every detail was key in rescuing a project that failed at another CRO. Finally, we will showcase how SAMDI Tech’s scientific research team acts as drug discovery consultants, designing novel assays that initiated drug discovery on previously intractable targets. The combination of the premier label-free SAMDI technology with the dedicated team at SAMDI Tech is a valuable resource to take any project beyond discovery and one step closer to the clinic.
