Application Note: Are Natural Products Delivering? Experiences and Recommendations from 27 Screening Campaigns
4 May 2010

In this application note from BioFocus, microbial strain subfractions are generated and used in high-throughput screens (HTS) for analysis with regard to diversity, selectivity and strain origin. Natural compounds were identified during the follow up of subfraction screening programs and their chemical properties have been analyzed. Searches in natural product databases revealed that 135 of the 645 identified natural compounds are novel compounds.
