Drug Discovery Chemistry

All drug development programs need efficient Discovery phases in order to screen potential candidates in timely and effective ways. Well-founded Discovery strikes a balance between eliminating those candidates where the profile makes development more challenging than it is worth, and others where the therapeutic possibilities and initial analyses are so promising that pre-formulation and formulation are indicated. Drug discovery and development is a complex, interdisciplinary process that can take time to facilitate. Work with Pion Inc and receive expert advice and analysis throughout the drug discovery pipeline.

High Throughput Solubility

Aqueous solubility is one of the key physchem properties to identify in drug discovery. Unacceptable solubility is important to ascertain early on, before unsuitable compounds are taken any further into development.
