Tocriscreen™ PRO Custom Compound Library Service

The Tocriscreen™ PRO service allows you to design a completely custom compound library to meet your exact screening requirements. With this cherry-picking service, you can choose compounds from a list over 3,000 products from the Tocris catalog (minimum order ~80 wet or 30 dry compounds), as well as customize the format of the compounds (dry powder or in solution), and the tubes they are supplied in.


The bioactive compounds available through the Tocriscreen PRO service cover a wide range of targets, such as GPCRs, ion channels, enzymes, kinases, nuclear receptors and transporters, and all major research areas and product actions. Included are commonly used research standards, novel research tools, and pharmacologically active components of FDA-approved therapeutics.


As well as requesting a completely custom library, the Tocriscreen PRO service also allows you to select a pre-defined list of compounds. Currently available lists are:

  • COVID-19 Compounds – this list is comprised of key targets within the SARS-CoV-2 viral life cycle and compounds that have been linked to coronaviruses in the scientific literature. The library is available in 10 mM DMSO solution (50 μL - 1 mL) or as dry powder (2 - 10 mg).
  • Additional New Products – If you previously purchased the Tocriscreen Plus, Plus Mini or Plus Micro Compound Libraries (Cat. Nos. 5840, 5481 and 6455, respectively), you can upgrade your library by adding the latest new products included in the Tocriscreen 2.0 Max, Tocriscreen 2.0 Mini and Tocriscreen 2.0 Micro (Cat. Nos. 7150, 7151 and 7152 respectively). These compounds are supplied pre-dissolved in 10 mM DMSO.


The Tocris scientific team are ready to help you with choosing compounds and designing your bioactive compound library to fit your research needs. To help our team get started on your inquiry, please provide as much information as possible about your required compound format, research areas and targets, and if you require one of the pre-defined lists outlined above.

Please submit your requirements through the compound library inquiry form.
