Drug Discovery Test Kits

Background on Drug Discovery 

Drug discovery is the process of identifying potential new drugs in the fields of medicine, biotechnology, and pharmacology. Modern drug discovery includes alcohol identification, drug abuse detection, medicinal chemistry, and optimization of drug efficacy/effectiveness, stability, and bioavailability. Determine the problems that can be solved by the drug meeting all these requirements, and then the drug development process and clinical trials can be carried out. Drug discovery has the characteristics of high cost, high risk, long cycle, and low return. Therefore, how to shorten the development cycle and improve efficiency has always been a problem that the new drug discovery field is committed to solving.

Classification of Drug Discovery Test Kits

The emergence of drug discovery test kits has greatly shortened the drug development cycle and improved efficiency. According to the different uses of the test kits, drug discovery test kits can be divided into the following categories:

  • Cell apoptosis and viability test kits: apoptosis and viability test kit can be used for rapid detection of cell cycle, apoptosis and cell viability of cultured adherent or suspension cells.
  • NO test kits: nitric oxide (NO) plays an important role in many important physiological functions. The nitric oxide (NO) test kits indirectly reflect the amount of NO produced by measuring the concentration of nitrate and nitrite in the sample.
  • ROS test kits:¬†the measurement of reactive oxygen species plays an important role in cancer research, immunology or food laboratories. The reactive oxygen species (ROS) test kits use the ultra-sensitive fluorescent probe DCFH-DA to detect reactive oxygen species.
  • Imaging test kits: the imaging test kits use bioluminescence and fluorescent in-vivo imaging technology to detect dynamic processes in cells by adding imaging reagents. They play an important role in studying disease-related biomarkers and disease pathways.
  • Mycoplasma test kits: the mycoplasma test kits provide a quick, simple and sensitive method for the detection of mycoplasma in cells, which can detect more than 130 (sub) species of mycoplasma.

Advantages of Drug Discovery Test Kit


The operation is simple, no professional skills are required, and a detailed product manual is equipped to introduce the detection steps and results.


The test results are accurate, specific, and there are many types of tests, which can be used for multiple purposes in drug discovery.


The detection speed is fast and the detection cost is low, which greatly improves the efficiency of drug discovery and saves research costs.


The detection sensitivity is high, the detection limit is very low, and the detection can be achieved with a small amount of samples.
