Compound Center is a facility managed by Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden (CBCS) and hosted by SciLifeLab, a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
Compound Center is managing the Scilifelab Compound Collection, where academic research groups have access to more than 200 000 small molecules for biological screening purposes. The collection is suitable for different type of test systems, spanning from isolated targets via phenotypic cell based assays to test system based on whole organisms as parasites or plants. After obtaining hit compounds, follow up material are available for further validation and downstream profiling.
Compound center and its STT3K-Kiwi store offer fully automated storage and retrieval of compounds organized in 96-tube racks. The STT3K-Kiwi store provide a capacity of 224 000 tubes. Each tube is containing a compound in 10mM DMSO solution stored in - 20 °C under humidity control. We have access to a fully automated Bravo pipetting system (Agilent) for high throughput delivery of compounds to screen or further nano dispensing . The facility is managing the national acoustic dispensing center with a Labcyte Echo 550 fully integrated with a Labcyte access station and a "on-the-side" Labcyte Echo 525. We offer open access to research groups after proper education.
