There is no real lack of drug targets any longer but the challenge of today's drug research is to find the corresponding drug-like molecules and to shorten the long lasting and expensive processes of hit and lead generation.
Natural products (NPs) and their derivatives are up to date still the most successful source for drug discovery campaigns. Over the years till today around half of all small molecules as NCE approvals trace their origin to compounds derived from nature. Hence innovative drug discovery campaigns are integrating natural products in their approach.
Bicoll turns this unparalleled pool of bioactive compounds provided by plants into an accessible source of promising candidates for your drug discovery, agro-sciences and nutraceuticals research.
The unique starting material for Bicoll's comprehensive drug discovery services is generated from endemic Asian plant resources, mostly collected in the tropical region of the P.R. China.
Through its research location at Shanghai, Bicoll is able to provide access to a unique and highly biodiverse pool of endemic Asian plants. This resource is the key for Bicoll's highly successful NP compound library BILOBAC N.
Within its plant supply network Bicoll guarantees reproducible scientific survey, collection and characterization including herbarium voucher, digital pictures and GPS positioning.
In close collaboration with renowned Chinese taxonomists, Bicoll secures all scientific information about the source of NCE.
