Identify and validate your target of interest using siRNA collections with readouts to interrogate functional pathways, proliferation, gene expression analysis, and protein modifications.

To take full advantage of the potential siRNAs present to drug discovery, Life Technologies now offers convenient siRNA screening services that combine our validated siRNA libraries with our validated cell-based assays.

Advantages of siRNA Screening

Validating novel targets or a wide-range of targets is challenged by the lack of known small molecule inhibitors for each target.  The use of RNA interference utilizing siRNAs provides a unique solution to this problem.

siRNA screening addresses a broader number of targets and achieves specificity through target-specific knockdown.  Adding siRNA screening to your early drug discovery screening programs can help to identify targets that traditional biochemical and cell-based screening and profiling may miss. 

Our Process

Upon receipt of your initial inquiry, a dedicated project manager is assigned to your project to streamline communication throughout your project.  Once the project requirements have been finalized by both parties, our siRNA screening process begins – with project steps summarized below.
