We are a team of enthusiastic problem solvers, with an overall shared goal of developing innovative venom-derived screening tools and lead compounds, to support our customers in achieving their own industry and research goals. Our passion and drive for venom biochemistry is intrinsically linked to our curious nature and desire to advance human healthcare, as well as to our personal experiences of the challenges faced by our customers.

We offer a library of around 20,000 peptides and proteins derived from venoms – the largest library of naturally sourced compounds available in the UK – from an ever-expanding range of vertebrate and invertebrate species. This increases your likelihood of finding effective, unique, and high-value candidates for even the most difficult-to hit drug and pesticide targets, or novel active ingredients for cosmetics applications.


Our customers benefit from:

  • A cleverly curated library of vertebrate and invertebrate venomous animals.
  • A deep and unrivalled knowledge of venom biochemistry and its applications.
  • Access to a wide array of venoms in sufficient quantities for repeated experiments, to obtain consistent results.
  • Proprietary skills and unique technical facilities for venom extraction, fractionation, purification and identification.
  • Targeted, high quality venom preparations in a convenient ready-to-use format.
