The Prestwick Chemical Library (R), A Valuable Tool for Screening
1. Prestwick Chemical, 220 Blvd Gonthier d'Andernach, 67400 Strasbourg-Illkirch, FRANCE 2. University of Strasbourg, Therapeuthic Innovation Laboratory, UMR7200 CNRS, Faculty of Pharmacy, 74 route du

The Prestwick Chemical Library® (PCL) is Prestwick’s flagship product dedicated to screening. It is a collection of 1280 molecules comprising 100% approved drugs (FDA, EMEA and other agencies) selected for their high chemical and pharmacological diversity. The PCL was designed to reduce the risk of "low quality" hits and therefore the cost of the initial screening, and appears to be an efficient smart library for hit discovery. The PCL comes with an extended fully-annotated database.
