Wildcat’s projects start with an introductory or trial phase. We typically call this step ‘method validation’, and it allow us to ensure that data from our high throughput system matches our customers’ results.
After method validation, we move into high throughput screening and perform a primary screen of potentially influential variables. Secondary screening comes next and involves more detailed screening of our best hits, and also combinations of promising hits.
Final screening and a detailed characterization comes last. In this phase, we’ll often perform extended cycling tests and also send samples to our customers for validation in large format cells.
We typically hold bi-weekly conference calls with our customers and summarize our findings.
