This article covers the establishment of an open access compound management facility in Australia to stimulate applied, basic and translational biomedical research.
Compound management may seem straightforward but in reality, as the number of new compounds increases dramatically year-on-year, the management of large collections has become increasingly challenging.
The development of new drugs involves testing hundreds of thousands of compounds, from high throughput screening through to subsequent lead optimization.
In December 2004 HTStec published its report on Compound Management Trends. This market report summarises the results of a global benchmarking study on pharmaceutical compound management (CM), documenting current practices, issues and future trends in CM, with a particular focus on compound quality control.
