How Much Compound?
Here's a question for those of you out in the industry: how much compound do you make, when you make a new one? Sometimes this question is equivalent to asking "How little will they let you get away with?" Different organizations have different requirements, on paper and for real, as to what that amount is. Five mg? Ten?
I've worked with people who kept coding these little 1.5mg amounts on most of their compounds, but I only do that if I'm desperate. That's really only going to do the immediate project any good, and not much, at that, if you want to do anything beyond the first in vitro assays. You'd like to have something living in the screening files so it can perhaps do some good later on. I try to aim for 10 to 20mg of compound, myself, although I don't always make it. And you?
