Compound Management (Edgar Specker)

The Compound Management was initiated in 2010 to facilitate the access for the academic community to a state-of-the-art compound management facility and was upgraded over the last decade. Initially, it started as an integral part of the Screening Unit and the Medicinal Chemistry group before it became an independent Core Faciltiy in 01/2020. At first, a REMP storage system hosted a compound library of 37.000 compound. Due to the higher demand of the constantly growing commercial and academic libraries an upgrade to the automated KIWI storage system was required with a larger capacity of 110.000 compounds. Today, it manages a diversity library of 43.000 compounds and a fragment library of 4000 compounds purchased from different commercial vendors. Over the years a academic library of about 8000 compounds was collected from a huge variety of academic chemistry groups together with 20.000 natural product derived compounds from Analyticon Discovery GmbH. In 2019, it moved next to the laboratories of the EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC where both infrastructures will benefit from each other using theirs synergies while maintaining their different strategic and scientific operations. The ultimate goals of the Core Facility is the provision of screening plates for the primary screening at the Screening Unit, the preparation of hitpicking plates in order to conduct concentration-dependent validations of primary hits, the QC-controls of these hits and the support of users to prioritize their hit lists.
