CORBEL Catalogue of Services


Why do we need a Catalogue of Services?

Currently there are 13 biological and medical sciences Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe, all of them working jointly together in CORBEL towards offering shared services for life-science.
All RIs offer services, i.e. researchers from academia and industry can access their facilities, technologies and expertise. Services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.

The CORBEL Catalogue of Services is the first tool to list the main services of all these RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world.

The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.
You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create your own CORBEL service pipelines, i.e. using several RIs subsequently.

Examples of service pipelines are provided here. 

>> In order to improve the catalogue, we kindly ask you to fill in a short feedback form.

EU-OPENSCREEN integrates high-capacity screening platforms throughout Europe, which jointly use a rationally selected compound collection, comprising up to 140.000 commercial and proprietary compounds collected from European chemists. EU-OPENSCREEN offers to researchers from academic institutions, SMEs and industrial organisations open access to its shared resources.

EU-OPENSCREEN will collaboratively develop novel molecular tool compounds with external users from various disciplines of the life sciences.

Services provided

Services provided by EU-OPENSCREEN include

  • high-throughput compound/ drug screening (HTS): HTS of an assay against the EU-OPENSCREEN chemical collection (> 100,000 compounds); in silico profiling; hit selection; confirmatory screening; basic counter screening; basic SAR based on screening data; QC of confirmed hits
  • access to a unique European compound collection: EU-OPENSCREEN chemical collection (> 100,000 compounds)
  • assay adaption: This assay adaptation process will involve a strong emphasis on quality, including: quality control of reagents; (patho-)physiological relevance; pharmacological consistency; robustness; minimised variability; and tracking of statistical descriptors (e.g. signal to background and the Z’ factor) 
  • chemical optimization and profiling of preliminary ‘hits’
  • bioprofiling of donated compounds: All compounds donated by the user which enter the EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC compound collection are characterised and annotated for basic physico-chemical (e.g. identity, solubility, light absorbance and fluorescence) and essential to know biological properties (cytotoxicity, antibiotic, antifungal etc.) by testing in a standard panel of assays.
  • provision of standardised data: All data generated through QC/bioprofiling and screening activities will be published in EU-OPENSCREEN’s open-access database with an optional ‘grace’ period (i.e. delayed publication of data). Large-scale open-access data provide the basis for computational data integration to obtain a systematic view, allow for prediction of drug-target interactions and networks as well as of adverse effects and drug combinations. The access to the EU-OPENSCREEN database will utilize the facilities of ChEMBL.
  • training and education activities


A screening project at a typical EU-OPENSCREEN screening site will cost 50-250k €, strongly depending on the number of screened substances and the maturity/ complexity of the assay.
A compound replenishment fee structure applies to all projects using the EU-OPENSCREEN compound collection and users from countries which are members of the EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC will receive a discount on this cost.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

Users are requested to submit project proposal to the EU-OPENSCREEN office. Depending on the project requirements, the RI can be assessed remotely or on-site.

Why work with us

The majority of scientists in Europe do not have access to suitable technology platforms and compound collections, which are generally expensive to purchase, operate and maintain. As a large-scale research infrastructure (RI) with an ‘open’ pre-competitive character, EU-OPENSCREEN will cost-effectively overcome this limitation by: involving and providing access to Europe’s leading screening platforms and chemistry groups; offering a jointly used rationally designed compound collection; and operating an open-access bioactivity database which will be accessible on a global basis. EU-OPENSCREEN offers to support you through grant application processes and beyond for funding involving screening projects.
