Assay Development

Assays are the analytic procedures used for qualitatively assessing or quantitavely measuring an organic sample, a biochemical substance, a cell in an organism or a drug.

As a routine part of modern medical and pharmaceutical studies, assays are often used to measure the effectiveness of a drug’s active ingredient on a biological sample, revealing everything from whether a drug works to how effective it is in varying doses.

Biotech, pharma and contract research organisations all require assay development scientists to develop customised assays to assist them in the drug discovery process. Assay development scientist jobs may specialise in a particular area – for example molecular assays, cell-based assays or biochemical assays – or deal with the development and validation of a range of different types of assays.

Assay Development candidates usually require a BSc in a related life science, such as cell biology, immunology or biology, and senior roles often stipulate that applicants be educated to PhD level. Salaries start at £25,000-£35,000 for a Scientist position, and move up to £35,000 – £40,000+ for a senior scientist role.
