In the fields of medicine, biotechnology and pharmacology, drug discovery is the process by which new candidate medications are discovered. Historically, drugs were discovered through identifying the active ingredient from traditional remedies or by serendipitous discovery. Later chemical libraries of synthetic small molecules, natural products or extracts were screened in intact cells or whole organisms to identify substances that have a desirable therapeutic effect in a process known as classical pharmacology. Since sequencing of the human genome which allowed rapid cloning and synthesis of large quantities of purified proteins, it has become common practice to use high throughput screening of large compounds libraries against isolated biological targets which are hypothesized to be disease modifying in a process known as reverse pharmacology. Hits from these screens are then tested in cells and then in animals for efficacy.

Chrome Plating – What is Chrome Plating?
Chrome Plating is the electroplating of chromium onto a metal or plastic object. The item being plated will be degreased, manually cleaned, go through necessary pretreatments, and placed into the Chrome Plating Vat. The Chrome Plating Vat allows the plating current to warm so that the chrome attains the desired thickness.
A typical hard chrome vat will plate at about 1 mil (25 µm) per hour. In the case where the chrome plating will be used for decorative purposes, various buffing processes and sanding processes will be used to create the perfect surface. For decorative chrome, thickness ranges between 0.005 and 0.001 mils and is usually placed over nickel plating and base materials usually include zinc alloys and copper alloys. When it comes to hard chrome, thickness tends to range between 0.02 to 0.06 mils. Hard chrome improves durability and reduces friction, which typically makes hard chrome industrial chrome.
Chrome Plating – Why Chrome Plating?
Chrome Plating is used for a multiple of different ways. Chrome Plating gives corrosion resistance, eases the cleaning procedures and hardens the surface, and chrome plating can also be just simply decorative.
