ChanTest Corporation Announces Drug Discovery Services Using Enamine 3D Compound Library
Oct 15 12
ChanTest Corporation announced the addition of a 50,000 compound chemical library from Enamine Ltd., a provider of screening compounds and chemical building blocks. This compound library (3D Diversity Set) will be available to ChanTest clients effective immediately as a key tool for drug discovery services. Enamine created this 3D Diversity Set of compounds by selecting from their 1.6 million compound high throughput screening collection (HTS collection) based on the diversity of three dimensional shapes. All compounds in the HTS collection are "drug-like" according to Lipinski Rules, so compounds in the 3D Diversity Set have maximum diversity based on molecular shape and structural/physiochemical features common to known drugs. ChanTest offers screening of the Enamine 3D Diversity Set to clients outsourcing drug discovery screening programs to ChanTest. ChanTest has the broadest selection of ion channel assays--and expertise to match. Included with each drug discovery service contract, ChanTest scientists work with clients to design meaningful assays and interpret the results in a cost effective manner. In this case, ChanTest and Enamine will partner with clients to convert hits identified from the non-proprietary library to proprietary leads.
