Pharmacology Targets


Our comprehensive range includes agonists, antagonists, partial agonists, DREADD ligands, caged compounds, NAMs, PAMs, biased agonists and fluorescent probes targeting over 30 families of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs)/7-Transmembrane receptors (7-TMs), including 5-HT, Glutamate and Dopamine receptors.

Enzyme-Linked Receptors

Our expansive collection of small molecule and peptide ligands target both the receptor and enzyme components of the five main types of enzyme-linked receptors, including RTKs, RSTKs, and toll-like receptors.



Our expansive enzymes range includes activators, substrates, inhibitors and fluorescent probes targeting over 25 different enzyme families, including ATPases, hydrolases, phosphodiesterases and transferases.

Ion Channels

We offer an expansive collection of activators, blockers and modulators, PSEMs, and caged compounds that can manipulate several classes of ion channels including calcium channels, ligand-gated ion channels and potassium channels.


Nuclear Receptors

Our range of small molecules and peptides includes agonists, antagonists, modulators and fluorescent probes, which regulates the activity of over 20 types of nuclear receptors, including androgen, estrogen receptors, glucocorticoid and vitamin D receptors.


Our transporter collection comprises inhibitors, activators, substrates and fluorescent probes, which target glucose, multidrug and neurotransmitter transporters, as well as ion pumps including Na+/Ca2+ exchangers and monocarboxylate transporters.

Other Pharmacology Targets

Targets include adenine receptors, antibiotics, antivirals, antioxidants, immunosuppressants, imidazoline receptors and sigma receptors among other targets, as well as miscellaneous compounds. View targets on

Rapid and Reproducible Pharmacokinetic Quantification

Simple Western™ fully automates CE-SDS/cIEF and immunodetection using conventional Western blot antibodies.  With 96 samples processed overnight, Simple Western will calculate IC/EC50, LOD, LOQ, and more with intra- and inter-assay CVs of <20%, even in complex samples like human serum and tissue homogenates. 



Bio-Techne brands R&D Systems and Novus Biologicals, offer 780,000 antibodies which have been validated in over 25 species for more than 15 applications.

Electrophysiology Neuron Hero Image


Electrophysiology techniques measure the electrical current or voltage changes across cells or tissue samples. Electrical activity can be modulated using ion channel modulators, DREADD ligands, PSEMs, GPCR ligands and caged compounds.

Immunoassays, ELISA kits and Luminex assays


Bio-Techne offer a wide range of immunoassay kits and reagents, including, Luminex® multiplexing assays, the gold standard Quantikine® ELISA kits, ELLA™ automated ELISA, and the Proteome Profiler™ Arrays.
