13th and 14th October 2016,  drug discovery 2016 was held in Liverpool, UK. We really enjoyed our venue at the 10th anniversary of ELRIG drug discovery symposium. Thanks to the ELRIG organisaters, we had the chance to present our activities in the innovation zone. A lot of exchanges were made about implementation of cellular high content assays across pharma, biotech, and academic research activities. We hope all these talks will lead to business and scientific collaborations.

High quality scientific presentations and posters made this symposium scientifically rewarding for drug discovery. Plennary sessions on translationnal and predictive models were very interesting. Advances in microstissues screening for drug prediction presented by Paul Walker highlight that 3D culture open a new area in high content analysis and  reinforces our choices in our R&D activities.

We would like to thank all the visitors who came to our booth, and we hope to meet you again next year !


We will be present in the “innovation zone” during the Drug discovery 2015 in Telford the 2nd and 3rd of September. The event is organised by ELRIG into 8 scientific sessions, which one is on phenotypic discovery and cell imaging. For participants, this event is free of charge. Thus, come and see us in the innovation zone!

The Scottish Government believes in the new strategy of phenotypic screening rather than target screening since they invest £8 million for university of Dundee and as they said: “Phenotypic screening is thought to be a powerful method for drug discovery because it offers the opportunity to go beyond the focus on single drug targets, 
which has traditionally been the most widely adopted approach for drug discovery.

Current systems have been plagued by low success rates in early development, as well as expensive late-stage failure of many new drugs in second or third phase trials, insiders said.”
