Caption: Robotic drug testing. Time exposure of Dr. Robert Zuckerman observing robotic drug-making equipment used in combinatorial chemistry. The movement of the apparatus is shown by the light trace at upper centre. Combinatorial chemistry involves adding different chemicals to individual solutions, mixing these into one, then dividing this common solution back into separate solutions. By continuously repeating this process with the same solution, vast numbers of drugs can be rapidly manufactured and tested. Those shown to be biologically active are then investigated more thoroughly. An automated laboratory can produce and screen one million new drugs in a few weeks.
