11-04-2012: Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc announced the 50th anniversary of its Maybridge chemistry products, a line of bioactive molecules to accelerate drug discovery and development. The Maybridge line is a comprehensive range of drug-like molecules and compound libraries for traditional drug-discovery screening, as well as fragment-based programs.
The Maybridge business, founded by organic chemist Dr. R.J. Bridgewater in 1962, became part of Thermo Fisher in 2002. The Maybridge line now encompasses more than 56,000 pre-plated drug-like screening compounds.
“We are very proud that after 50 years Maybridge products continue to enable discovery,” said Simon Pearce, product manager for Maybridge and Acros Organics products at Thermo Fisher. “We continue to evolve to better serve our customers and have just completed our move from Tintagel, England to the Thermo Fisher site in Loughborough, where we will further strengthen our core offerings and improve our service to our customers worldwide. Our new location will allow us to leverage the dedicated technical, supply-chain and operational teams that support other world-class Thermo Fisher Scientific chemical product lines.”
