Preclinical and Drug Discovery CRO

REPROCELL Biopta’s human tissue technology predicts clinical success by using the closest possible model of drug behavior in humans.

Human tissue testing is a translational approach to drug discovery that bridges the gap between animal studies and clinical trials — increasing clinical success rates and adding commercial value to preclinical drug assets through proof of concept in patient-derived living tissues.

Eliminate Clinical Adverse Effects

Adverse effects may go undetected during preclinical safety assessments and only become apparent during clinical trials. In most cases, such adverse effects in humans were not observed in animal models.
