Fragment-based screening is now well-established as a powerful approach to early drug ("lead") discovery.
We routinely use the DSI-Poised library for both academic and industrial users, and can offer some follow-up support for users screening their target with this library.
We also have several additional fragment libraries available in-house, totalling over 2000 compounds. All are available in d6-DMSO at 100-500 mM concentrations, whilst some are also offered in ethylene glycol (EG), typically at 100 mM. Each library is prepared in an ECHO-compatible source plates ready for rapid crystal soaking experiments.
Details of all of our libraries (both live and decommissioned), are available on each libraries relevant sub-pages, including SMILES, contact details and links to any relevant websites and publications, where available.
None of the compounds in our collection are bound by any IP. All compounds in our collection are commercially available from suppliers, or else published; if you wish to have IP assurances, please contact the suppliers in question. The only requirement Diamond places on use of its facilities, through the academic route is that all results are published (covered by the Policy Documents on Diamond's website (here).
If you want to use your own compounds or have your own fragments library, please have look at our requirements (link to dedicated page).
If you wish to use any of the additional libraries, please let your local contact know well in advance that you would want to use them:
