The discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells in combination with advances in the understanding of human cell developmental biology has created the conditions for a revolution in pre-clinical science.
Newcells Biotech is focused on using our proprietary technology to deliver the best biology into our assays products and services that give discovery and safety teams data that reduces risk and raises productivity in drug and chemical development.
Our approach delivers assays that are better models of human in vivo physiology for difficult to obtain cells and tissues.
Dr Mike Nicholds, Chief Executive Officer
We are experts in the production of hiPSC lines and their differentiation. Using our developed hiPSC technology, we can collaborate with your drug discovery, development and toxicity teams to transform how you develop innovative drugs and compounds. Our expertise in cell biology extends into the use of primary cells to produce innovative cross-species assays for transporter and toxicity studies.
A new drug can take on average 10 years from initial discovery stage to licensing approval, with each approved drug costing more than £1bn to develop, not to mention those that fail along the way. Our cell based assay iPSC technology will transform your preclinical testing to reduce the unpredictable and costly nature of drug discovery.
IN VITRO SAFETY AND PHARMACOLOGY
Predicting drug toxicity is still a challenge when developing safe pharmaceuticals and is a major contributor to the high cost of drug development. Human derived iPSCs opens new avenues for predictive in vitro models that reduce attrition rates and improve in vitro to in vivo translation.
Do you have a question or query?
We have the network and infrastructure to ethically source customer required samples, across a wide range of cell types from healthy and disease-affected individuals, and produce quality controlled hiPSC lines ready for use in customers’ projects.
ASSAY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Using primary or hiPSC based platforms, we provide and are creating 24- to 96-well format cell based assays for customers to use in-house as well as a complementary service to design and conduct study protocols on behalf of customers’ teams.
Our assay development teams collaborate to produce validated assays for disease modelling efficacy and safety studies for academic, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and chemical customers.
Collaborate with Newcells Biotech
We are already collaborating on research projects with a wide range of partners, and welcome suggestions for new partnerships.
We understand the complex interaction of multidisciplinary drug discovery and toxicology teams, which is why we offer a collaborative bespoke approach.
