Profacgen Enables Faster Drug Discovery with Its Computer-aided Drug Design Services

Profacgen, a global supplier of life science research tools, recently announced the launch of its Computer-aided Drug Design Services based on the most state-of-the-art VS techniques and software tools for hit and lead identification. 

Rapid developments in the fields of combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening (HTS) technologies have enabled large libraries of compounds to be synthesized and screened. While, in general, synthesizing a large number of compounds is quite expensive and time-consuming. Thus, computational methods are gaining increasing popularity in drug discovery.

Now, both ligand-based virtual screening (LBVS) and structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) services are available in Profacgen for customers to choose. According to its official speaker, the computer-aided drug design services in Profacgen enable researchers to effectively screen drug design space and identify most promising candidates. The optimized protocol can reduce the size of chemical library to be screened experimentally, increasing the likelihood to find innovative hits in a faster and less expensive manner, and mitigating the risk of failure in the lead optimization process due to absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity deficiencies.

“By providing researchers with highly optimized computer-aided drug design services, we are enabling scale up to faster drug discovery, and helping reduce the cost at the same time.” commented Crystal, the chief marketing staff in Profacgen.
