Press Release

Enamine Ltd., a leading chemical research organization and producer of the world’s largest collections of novel building blocks (225,000+) and screening compound libraries (2,740,000+), has joined the Advanced Machine Learning for Innovative Drug Discovery (AIDD) program, funded by the European Union within the framework of the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) with a budget of Euros 3.93 million. The project, coordinated by Helmholtz Zentrum München,Germany, brings together fifteen institutions from eleven countries in addition to the University of British Columbia (Canada) to train sixteen PhD students in close collaboration with associated partners from the USA, Australia, China, Israel and other countries and develop next generation AI and Machine Learning (ML) models and systems for drug discovery.


Press Release

Today Enamine, a leading provider of small molecules and drug discovery services, Chemspace, an online catalog with the largest offer of small molecules to search and buy, and Blue Dolphin Lead Discovery, a research organization focused on a fee-for-service virtual screening, announced the launch of the collaboration to support drug discovery projects.


Press Release

Enamine Ltd. and Astex Pharmaceuticals (UK) have cooperated to provide wide access to Astex’ MiniFrag library, an efficient Fragment-based Drug Discovery tool for identification of hot and warm spots of protein targets. The Library is readily available from Enamine in any suitable format, including dry samples or assay-ready high concentration (1M, 100mM) aqueous soaks in containers of preferred type. The detected MiniFrag hits can be followed-up with a wide range of stock available and synthetically feasible derivatives as well as with building blocks for introduction of the relevant structural features for lead optimization.


Press Release

Cyclica, Inc. announced a collaboration with Enamine Ltd. to explore its huge readily accessible chemical space using Cyclica’s state-of-the-art AI-driven Ligand Design™ platform. The companies aim to empower Cyclica’s patented, evolutionary algorithm with new design options based on the 73,000 Enamine’s in-stock building blocks and 171 thoroughly validated synthesis procedures. The joint effort is expected to enable Cyclica’s Ligand Design™ to identify novel molecules with desired polypharmacological properties out of over 11 billion REAL™ (readily accessible) compounds. At least 80% of these compounds will be synthesized by Enamine within only 3-4 weeks.


News

In continuation of our efforts to make affordable screening libraries that can quickly be supplied for screening, we have plated two new targeted libraries designed to bring high quality and novelty to your hit finding program. Both freshly-made libraries are ready for fast shipment within only one week in various formats including assay-ready plates.

Ion Channel Library contains 36 800 compounds.

Protein-Protein Interaction Library has 40 640 compounds including 8 960 Protein Mimetics.

News

The demand for library synthesis at Enamine driven by the on-site access to the world’s largest and most reputable stock of building block has multiplied in 2018. We keep developing our preparative chromatography capabilities to sustain the drastically increasing number of compounds produced.

Press Release

Optibrium™ today announced a collaboration with Enamine. The collaboration provides StarDrop™ users with easy access to EnamineStore, a database of their commercially available screening compounds and chemical building blocks. StarDrop has been developed to connect seamlessly with a wide variety of internal and external informatics systems and this latest partnership further extends the wealth of information available to users through StarDrop and its capabilities for small molecule design, optimisation and data analysis in drug discovery.

StarDrop provides free access to the Enamine database to easily search for commercially available compounds and building blocks. Enamine has over 3.3 million screening compounds and a further library of 7.8 million building blocks available to order from EnamineStore. The link enables users not only to search for specific compounds, but also find those that are structurally similar to their most interesting hits and leads or contain relevant substructures. This provides an invaluable tool for researchers to quickly enrich the understanding of their chemical structure-activity relationships.


Press Release

Enamine Ltd., a leading chemical research organization and producer of the world’s largest collections of novel building blocks (225,000+) and screening compound libraries (2,740,000+), today announced the release of the Coronavirus Library. The new screening library capitalizes on Enamine’s decades of chemical R&D, advanced library design expertise, and experience with creating focused antiviral libraries. Enamine is a participant of a global Open Science initiative “COVID Moonshot”, aimed at discovering novel therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2.


News

An international group of scientists from academia and industry, including Enamine, is trying to help combat COVID-19. This effort began when Chinese scientists worked rapidly to determine the structure of the novel SARS‑CoV‑2 main protease (Mpro), which triggered a massive crystal-based fragment screen at the XChem facility at UK’s Diamond Light Source. For more details, please visit https://www.diamond.ac.uk/covid-19. With the same urgency, the scientists are now trying to progress these data towards what is desperately needed: effective, easy-to-make anti-COVID drugs https://covid.postera.ai/covid.

Press Release

Optibrium™, BioSolveIT™ and Enamine™ today announce a three-way collaboration enabling efficient search of Enamine’s REAL Space directly from within Optibrium’s StarDrop™ software. This extension to StarDrop is powered by BioSolveIT’s proprietary Feature Trees (FTrees) technology, to search a gigantic chemical space of over 11 billion readily accessible compounds and identify novel compounds that are similar to a query structure of interest. The resulting chemical structures and data are pre-formatted and ready to evaluate using StarDrop’s comprehensive suite of integrated software for small molecule design, optimisation and data analysis.


News

In a recent JACS paper several academic groups collaborated on discovery of novel covalent inhibitors using a library of 993 acrylamides and chloroacetamides sourced from Enamine’s covalent fragment collection. The design was focusing on mild electrophiles that were supposed to overcome the selectivity challenge. The library was characterized by a new high-throughput thiol-reactivity assay and screened against 10 cysteine-containing proteins. Potent and unique primary hits have been found in the majority (7 out of 10) of cases.

Press Release

Enamine and H. Lundbeck A/S (Lundbeck) announced the expansion of their research collaboration. Enamine will support Lundbeck’s in-house discovery chemistry competencies with three principal assets enabling Lundbeck to optimally identify and develop hit series in its multiple research programs. A large diverse library of 100 000 new screening compounds was done for hit finding activities on numerous therapeutic targets. Enamine’s make-on-demand REAL compounds are for efficient access to billions of novel chemical compounds. Enamine FTE increased dedicated team of chemists to effectively support Lundbeck on all hit related follow-up activities backed by immediate access to over 170 000 building blocks in Enamine’s inventory.


News

Our compound management team at Enamine is excited about the recent acquisition of the Echo® 550 Liquid Handler from Labcyte. This robotic superhero is expected to significantly speed up and notably precise compound handling, which is exactly an option needed for 2.5 Million+ compounds in stock. Screening libraries at Enamine are now more accessible, more customized and assay-ready to meet your exact needs in compound screening.
