Label-Free Cell Phenotypic Drug Discovery

Author(s): Ye Fang
Phenotypic screen holds great potential in the discovery of new small molecule probes and drugs, as it permits interrogating small molecules with native targets and pathways in model organisms and disease relevant cells. In the past years, label-free cell phenotypic profiling has been emerging an alternative for drug discovery. This paper provides the rational for phenotypic screens, discusses the basics of label-free cell phenotypic profiling technologies, and provides some guidelines as to how to use these techniques to facilitate drug discovery
