Assay Depot owns and operates the world’s largest online marketplace for scientific research services. By bringing together more than 875 Contract Research Organizations (CROs) onto a single e-commerce platform, the Public Research Exchange (RX) enables researchers from around the world to have on-demand access to thousands of drug research services that were previously only available to researchers at the largest and wealthiest pharmaceutical companies. Assay Depot also owns and operates a network of private RXs, each of which serves as the central research hub for a large pharmaceutical company. Private RXs have the same look and feel as the public exchange, but are customized to meet the needs of each large research organization.
By formalizing the traditionally ad hoc process of research outsourcing, all parties involved (researchers, research managers, CROs, pharma companies …) realize dramatic increases in efficiency, ultimately resulting in a significant improvement in the way new medicines are discovered.
Assay Depot is available to researchers at http://www.assaydepot.com and to CROs at http://backoffice.assaydepot.com.
