Unraveling Drug Mechanisms of Action with Discovery Proteomics

Understanding a drug’s mechanism of action is essential for successful clinical development. Our Mechanism of Action Studies provide a broader and deeper understanding of the molecular targets and the relevant biological pathways that respond to treatment with your compound of interest.

    The Mechanism of Action Studies service identifies the specific biochemical interactions in which a drug candidate produces a pharmacological effect. Actionable insights are achieved through the quantification of thousands of proteins among control and treatment samples for subsequent correlation analysis.

    The application is based on Biognosys’ proprietary Hyper Reaction Monitoring (HRM™) technology.

    We offer a choice of depth for the proteome profiling. Post-translational modification analysis and other customized services are also available upon request.

    The service is ideal for researchers who are looking for a deep proteome quantification service to identify the mechanism of action and characterize molecular pathways in a hypothesis-free manner.


    The results are presented and discussed with you in a dedicated conference call and delivered electronically in PDF and Excel format.
