In vitro Predictive Toxicity Testing

The Bioluminomics principle assay products for high throughput in vitro toxicity screening during early and late stage drug development.

The assays are designed for:

  • Basic research toxicology and pharmacology
  • Toxicology, risk and safety assessment for biopharmaceutical companies
  • Environmental testing

Preferred Cell Systems provides assays for in vitro toxicity screening. The testing principle is based on the determination of the intracellular ATP concentration by measuring the correlated bioluminescence on 96-well plates. For validation the assay kits include standard & controls.

The Bioluminomics principle:
