Chemical Libraries

HTB maintains a collection of about 140 000 small molecule compounds including knowndrugs, bioactives, and diversified sets of chemicals. The drugs and known bioactives are ideal for biological profiling, drug repositioning and personalized medicine-type of screens, while the larger chemical diversity collections are best suited for molecular probe discovery. Available chemical collections are listed in a table below.


Drug aliquots, DSRT- and custom drug plates

Being a partner of the DDCB network, a national infrastructure for drug discovery and chemical biology research in Finland, FIMM/HTB distributes aliquots of available chemical compounds to academic research groups in Finland for a small fee covering the actual compound costs and handling. 


Aliquots are given every second Wednesday:

Spring: 9.1.2019, 23.1.2019, 6.2.2019, 20.2.2019, 6.3.2019, 20.3.2019, 3.4.2019, 17.4.2019, 30.5.2019 (Tue), 15.5.2019, 29.5.2019, 12.6.2019, 26.6.2019 

Autumn: 7.8.2019, 21.8.2019, 4.9.2019, 18.9.2019, 2.10.2019, 16.10.2019, 30.10.2019, 13.11.2019, 27.11.2019, 11.12.2019


Inquiries and requests for aliquots and drug plates should be sent to laura.turunen(a)fimm.fi, maria.nurmi(a)fimm.fi or elina.z.lehtinen(a)fimm.fi. Use the following instructions for HTB services.
