Cell-based quantitative HTS drug screening platform

New innovative technology and parameters for drug assessment
in physiological setting.


HTS label-free
drug screening platform.

Cancer and cardiovascular diseases are manifested in cell motility and contractility, both linked to irregular forces exerted by the cells. To address this, we have developed a high-content
in-vitro drug screening platform
for studying mechanical diseases (triggered by abnormal cellular force generation) by measuring contractility as a new drug assessment marker.

 Our cell-based technology can quantify tiny cellular forces and cell migration in a single measurement. Using AI, this is done in a high-throughput and label-free manner. It provides real-time insight at the single cell level.

Increases efficacy

Our assay is simple, quantitative, AI driven and

It generates reliable data that increases efficacy and the probability of success for drug discovery & development.


How quickly is technology improving?

Solar technology has improved dramatically over the last decade. So you may be considering waiting longer for the technology to mature and prices to drop. Our guide analyzes pricing trends versus technological improvements over the last decade so you get a better idea of when the right time to invest is.

How much will it cost?

The up front costs of installing solar panels usually range between $10-25K (and sometimes even higher). Explore all the factors that go into determining the final price of buying and installing panels on your home, as well as options for financing them over time.

When will you see ROI?

This will be different for everyone as it’s based on your geography, climate, energy needs, and even the location and position of your home. Our guide can help you break down all of these factors to get a better idea of how long it will be until you see a return on your solar panel investment.
