    "<b>Pilot screening</b> After establishing an optimized assay protocol that meets acceptable criteria in a replicate plate test, a pilot screen of 2,000 to 3,000 compounds from a reference library with a high-degree of pharmacophore content is recommended. The purpose of the pilot screen is to assess the behavior of the assay conditions and automation procedures you have optimized during assay development under actual screening conditions. In addition, this pilot screen will be used to establish criteria for ‘hit’ conditions and selection. At this point, an assay protocol must be submitted for inclusion in our screening database. <b>Production screens</b> The facility has the capability to process upto ~100 microtiter plates per day depending on the assay type and number of steps. Facility staff will work with investigators/users to determine screen logistics (time considerations, libraries, amounts/volumes of reagents, etc). For newly developed assays, it is recommended that the assay conditions be tested in a pilot-scale screen (see above). For previously developed assays, demonstration of acceptable criteria in a single day replicate plate procedure will be sufficient to proceed with a production screen. When performing a production screen, it is preferable to process as many plates as possible during usage of the equipment and laboratory staff time. We strongly suggest screening all compounds in duplicate to enhance interpretation of data points. Only screening facility personnel are permitted to handle library stock plates, and thus they perform all compound transfers from library plates into assay plates. Screening facility personnel will not be responsible for conducting any other parts of a screen unless agreed upon prior to the initiation of the screen, and will be charged as assisted use. The laboratory conducting the screen is responsible for purchasing all plasticware to be used for the screen, this includes pipette tips, plates, and any other materials specific to your screen (reagent troughs, plate seals, tissue culture reagents, assay reagents, labels for barcoding etc.). The screening laboratory has also negotiated some bulk discounting on plates and pipette tips for the liquid handling unit, and therefore, investigators can purchase these items from the screening facility at cost."
