By admin Dec11,2023

It will add to the existing in-vitro biology capabilities with the addition of primary and secondary screening capabilities of compounds prepared at the Indian site.

Piramal Pharma Limited’s Pharma Solutions (PPS) business is a leading Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) and with this expansion it is well positioned to provide clients with an integrated set of discovery capabilities and the use of a wide range of in vitro screening technology tools to support a broad portfolio of research services.

PPS says the goal is to generate data that provides a superior data package for clients and enhance the company’s value as an outsourcing partner. The benefits of this new investment, it says, will be seen in an improved experience for PPS discovery services customers.

Peter DeYoung, chief executive officer, at Piramal Pharma Solutions said, “Through these enhanced in-vitro biology services, our drug discovery team will be able to provide clients with decision-driving information earlier and will be an even more effective partner in the drug discovery process.”

The integration of chemistry and biology services under one roof, PPS says, promises to add high efficiency to the discovery process. To enable this expansion, the company is committed to bringing in experienced personnel with a demonstrated track record in biology services, complementing the existing technical and operational expertise.

The new high-throughput screening format enables PPS to evaluate and screen large collections using various assay platform technologies including, but not limited to, Time-Resolved Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (TR-FRET), Homogeneous Time-Resolved Fluorescence (HTRF), Fluorescence Polarization (FP), absorbance, Luminescence/Electrochemiluminescence (ECL), AlphaScreen, LanthaScreen, flow cytometry and high-content imaging. These platforms will be applicable to a variety of targets including but not limited to G-Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) and kinases.
