What is a HTS system and why is it important in drug development?

A high-throughput screening (HTS) system consists of the robotic processes and equipment needed for scientists rapidly screens tens of thousands of compounds in an HTS assay. This tool allows researchers to rapidly determine whether any of these tens of thousands of compounds are capable of producing the desired biological effect. Additional research is needed to determine whether compounds that have the desired effects in the assay - called active compounds - can be used as therapies. In addition to being used to identify active compounds, HTS systems can also be used to identify active antibodies or genes in a relevant molecular pathway.
