Our product program comprises services in the fields of research and testing.
  • We develop and provide cell culture systems for the prediction of toxic, short-term, and long-term effects of agents on the human body.
  • Transporter assays play an important role in drug development. They are important for the evaluation if a new compound is a substrate or an inhibitor and for the role of possible drug-drug interactions.

The liver is known as one of the most important sources of metabolism and drug biotransformation.
  • It is logical that liver cells are the choice for toxicological and pharmacological testing.
  • All adverse chemicals are called hepatotoxins. Overdoses and even lower rates than recommended may cause liver injuries. Chemical agents, natural chemicals such as microcystins or herbal remedies can cause hepatotoxicity.
