NIH Grant has been awarded to Hudson Robotics and Johns Hopkins University for in vivo Studies. Cell imaging on in vivo studies on whole organism as zebrafish is a powerfull tool during drug discovery. Nevertheless, the throughput is really low to be used during preliminary drug discovery. Working on implementation of automated system for which a suitable in vivo assay can be developed in high throughput will save time and money while helping to streamline and speed up the drug discovery research process.
In vivo studies are done using a whole living organism. The HTS system being developed is termed the Automated Reporter Quantification in vivo (ARQiv) system. It is being created to bring high-throughput screening technology into the world of in vivo studies.
