Gastrointestinal Motility Assays
Our organ bath model can be used to investigate the effect of your test article on gut motility. These studies can determine how drugs affect motility in a therapeutic capacity (e.g. to prevent diarrhea or to treat constipation, gastroparesis, or disorders of gastrointestinal sphincters or gallbladder) or from a safety perspective. Full-thickness circular or longitudinal gastrointestinal muscle strips can be used to investigate the effect of your test article.
