Two years after initial launch, the next generation of DEL kits are ready for release. Self-service DNA-Encoded Library (DEL) kits are a core component of the Target-to-Hit platform at WuXi AppTec HitS. The updated DEL kits contain new features packed in one box: in line QC, online tracking, interactive reporting, and an AI enhanced hit finding option. DELopen is a freely accessible collection of DELs for academic drug-discovery, while DELight allows pharmaceutical companies to conduct a DEL screen in their own lab, without needing to reveal the identity of their target.
Alex Satz has 15+ years experience building DNA encoded library (DEL) platforms, and is currently the senior director of DEL strategy and operations at WuXi AppTec. Prior to WuXi AppTec, Alex led the Roche DEL platform in Basel Switzerland, and helped to develop the first industrial-scale DEL platform at Praecis Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline.
