Our Compound Collection shipped to participating screening centres all over Europe

15 January 2020

The European Lead Factory (ELF) project has some impressive numbers to share! Over the past months, ELF Partner BioAscent has shipped 3,256 screening plates from the updated Compound Collection to the nine screening sites that are part of ELF.

A screening plate is 13 cm long, meaning that so far, we have shipped about 423 m of plates - four times the length of a soccer field. Each plate holds a maximum of 1,536 compounds from the collection, which consists of approximately 535,000 compounds. This means that more than 350 plates need to be shipped to supply one copy of this exclusive compound library.

Operations like these require high-quality infrastructure and excellent operational skills, which we are fortunate to have within the ELF Consortium.
