FDA Approved Drug Library Mini

Cat. No.: HY-L022M

New drug development is a time-consuming and high-cost process. Drug repurposing (also called drug repositioning, reprofiling or re‑tasking) offers various advantages over developing an entirely new drug for a given indication. First, the risk of failure is lower. Second, the time frame for drug development can be reduced. Third, less investment is needed. Approved drugs have identified bioactivities, good pharmacokinetic characteristics and safety which are suitable for drug repurposing.

MCE owns a unique collection of 2710 approved compounds which have been completed extensive preclinical and clinical studies and have well-characterized bioactivities, safety and bioavailability properties. The package of this library is 96-well microplate with peelable foil seal, which makes the screening process easier and faster.

1   Can we centrifuge the whole rack?

Yes. It is advised to centrifuge all of the samples before experimental use. Recommended centrifugation for this plate is 1000g or less.

2   How can I use the 2D barcode on the microplate lid?

Use an HD barcode scanner to scan the barcode, and then find the corresponding plate and compound information in the Excel or the provided hard copy.

3   What are the appropriate compound storage conditions?

For solutions, store at -80°C. For some special compounds, specific handling instructions are provided.

4   After receiving the compound library, the ice box has melted, will this affect the efficacy of thecompound?

MCE products are primarily chemical synthesis products which are not temperature sensitive. The ice boxes inside of the packages are used to prevent the occurrence of extreme temperatures during the process of transportation, and a melted icebox will not affect the reagent quality. After transit, the icebox is no longer needed.


Product Details

• Formulation:A collection of 2710 marketed drugs supplied as pre-dissolved Solutions
Solution: 2623 compounds supplied in 10 mM solution, 64 compounds supplied in 2 mM solution, 23 compounds supplied in 3 mg/mL solution.

• Layout: 96-well storage tube or 96-well plate: 1st and 12th column are left empty.

384-well plate: the first two columns and the last two columns are left empty.

Compounds with different concentrations or dissolved in different solvents will be put on separate plates. This way of layout may increase the number of plates because there could be three solvents and three concentrations.

If you have other requirements, please let us know.

• Container:96-well Plate With Peelable Foil Seal

• Storage:-80°C
