Free PPI-Net compound library
11 Sep 2014
PPI-Net is delighted to announce that a compound collection that was purchased using PPI-Net funds is now available for free of charge (except for postage) to all PPI-Net members. This PPI Net compound collection is a library of 1534 compounds that can be used for screening.
This is stored in Leeds and is intended to assist the community by making copies available free of charge as a starting point for screens and assays. GSK have also generously contributed £10,000 towards further expansion of the library.
PPI-Net members can request access to the request sytem in order to view the SD files and order compounds by emailing us.
