Enamine Ltd., a chemical research organization and producer of novel
building blocks and screening libraries, and TBD Biodiscovery, a premium
GMP manufacturer of fine chemicals including chemical active
pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), today announced they have entered
into a collaboration agreement. The partnership aims to manage the
transition of chemical synthesis of novel intermediates from laboratory
to bulk scale under GMP standards utilizing Enamine’s know-how and
process development expertise. This will help researchers meet the
manufacturing feasibility criteria required for drug candidate
selection, providing a rapid and cost effective scaled supply of new

Enamine’s catalogue of building blocks is the largest in the world and
has been widely used by pharmaceutical companies for more than 15 years
to develop lead compounds and drug candidates. With syntheses of these
compounds first realized by Enamine, the company holds specialist
knowledge that can be critical to successful scale-up. In the announced
collaboration Enamine will optimize synthesis processes while TBD
Biodiscovery will use the developed protocols to manufacture requested
products to GMP standard.

Dr. Vladimir Ivanov, Chief of Sales and Marketing at Enamine, commented:
“We recognize that the building blocks we synthesize are being
incorporated into the development of new drugs. We are confident that by
working in partnership with TBD Biodiscovery with their extensive
experience in providing synthesis services under GMP, we can further
extend the support we provide and help streamline the manufacturing

Dr. Andrus Tasa, Chairman of the Management Board of TBD Biodiscovery,
