DELopen is a platform initiated by WuXi AppTec Co. LTD and academia / institutions dedicated to the development and application of DNA Encoded Library (DEL) Technology. The goal of the platform is to provide free access of DEL libraries owned by participating partners to academic users for research in drug discovery. We envision that the new platform provides full protection of intellectual properties for both user and technology provider and will unlock the true potential of DEL technology.
DELight is WuXi DEL’s self-serve product that gives researchers direct access to a collection of more than eight billion compounds. Through the DELight service package, WuXi will provide a DNA Encoded Library kit and a user manual/protocols document to the research organization. Upon receipt of the kit, the researcher will perform affinity selection according to the protocol and return the sample to WuXi. WuXi then completes analysis such as PCR amplification, qPCR determination, purification and NGS (Next Generation Sequencing). A summary report (excluding structural and DNA sequence information) will be provided back to the researcher, who will make informed decision on follow up actions based on the selection results.
