Marine Biomedical & Biotechnology Research

Peak Library


Extracts of marine organisms are typically made up of complex mixtures of natural products. To provide samples that are useful in high throughput screening, the Marine Biomedical & Biotechnology Research Program, with support from the National Institutes of Health, is developing a library of enriched and pure materials for screening. This peak library consists of fractions that are prepared through medium-pressure liquid chromatography using an ISCO Combiflash Companion. Just one example of the power of screening the peak libraries is the identification of a novel chemical entity with utility against the malaria parasite within one week of the first test of the material. This library of materials is available for screening through collaborative partnerships.
