Compounds Australia is the home of Australia’s compound collection, curating 600,000 purified chemicals and the Nature Bank fractions. Compounds Australia provides key compound management services and logistics, seamlessly connecting chemists with biologists for drug discovery research.
Australia's only dedicated compound management facility, it is a national resource founded in 2005 with Queensland Government funding that allows chemists to deposit small molecules into a central repository for quick and efficient access by life science research teams. The facility has been very successful and is expanding to meet demand.
Compounds Australia is Australia’s chemistry resources at your fingertips. Its aim is to synergise interactions between Australasian chemists, biomedical researchers and their international colleagues. Chemists can deposit their samples and natural product extracts into Australia's only purpose-built small molecule repository. Biologists can select screening sets from the unique suite of molecules on offer.
Recently CA developed CASPER, the Compounds Australia Structure Portal, providing open, online access to real-time structure information on the collection.
