Title:
SCREENING ASSAY METHODS AND SYSTEMS USING TARGET POOLING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2001079522
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
Methods, devices and systems for increasing the throughput of screening assays by pooling multiple target systems, which allow a library of different materials, e.g., test compounds, to be screened against the pooled targets to determine whether any of the materials affect one or more of the target systems. In preferred aspects, functioning of individual target systems is identified by differences in physical, chemical and/or optical properties particular to the target system in a target pool.
