Sensitive and all-around
Explore the frontier of drug discovery with our cutting-edge assay platform, featuring GPCR-selective signal amplification technology and unparalleled receptor coverage.
Welcome to Tanso Biosciences, a leading provider of functional assays for G-protein-coupling receptors (GPCRs). Our proprietary technology allows for the selective amplification of GPCR-induced signals in reporter cells, providing sensitive and specific readouts for a wide variety of GPCRs. We offer a range of panel options and custom assays to meet the unique needs of our clients, and provide contract research services to pharmaceuticals, biotech companies, food companies, and academia worldwide. We also engage in our own in-house drug discovery projects. Explore our site to learn more about our services and how we can support your research.
Drug Discovery Enterprise
We take advantage of our all-around assay technology and engage in drug discovery for orphan GPCRs.
Panel assays, concentration dependence analysis, and other functional assays for > 550 human and mouse GPCRs.
- On-target and off-target screening for drug discovery
- Compound profiling
- Strategy development
- In-licensing assessment
- Drug repurposing
Characterizes compounds' potency, not affinity, on the G-protein pathways of the target GPCR in various modes
Dramatically and specifically amplifies G-protein-dependent signals
All GPCRs are amenable in single assay format, regardless of Gα proteins coupled
Clients & Partners
