Collections - Design and Production of the Novartis’ Next Generation Screening Deck

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The presentation is about the story of the design of our new screening deck (~1.4 millions of compounds) for diversity driven sub-set and iterative screening as well as what it needs to make it available for screening across the three screening research sites of NIBR.

The production of the new 384-source plates as well as the 1536-copies occurred from June to October 2019. The previous plates made during a former screening deck campaign in 2015 were getting near end of their lifecycle. All solutions were re-assembled using different criteria and a new performing deck design developed by a team of cross-functional experts. The new production includes as well compounds added since 2015.

Therefore, the presentation also offers an overview of our Compound Management facilities from our storage systems (Tube Store and Plate Store) to one of our unique and high performing liquid handling platform named HTP (High Throughput Plating system).
