TRANSLATING WITH
RODENT MODELS
THE LINK TO HUMAN DISEASE

At SynapCell, we believe in rodent models; when enhanced by EEG they have a lot to offer in CNS drug discovery.

Relevance
of rodent models

Here, at SynapCell, we admit that rodent models have limits, but they still have a strong potential for drug discovery.
Rodent models combine the right conditions to approximate human brain disorders, faithfully copying several characteristics of the diseases. With EEG technologies, relevant, yet unexploited information becomes visible.

Moreover, rodent models are a very powerful resource for your drug discovery trials, being easily adaptable to the needs of your study and very quick to set up.

At SynapCell, we merge several unique approaches to drug discovery: recording multisite electrical activity in the brains of freely moving animals, conserving translational biomarkers between rodent models and patients – and vice versa – always using the animal as its own control.

High standards
for model selection

The rodent model selected can have a serious impact on the success of a study. That is why we are at your side to make this decision: at SynapCell, we provide tailored services – there is no catalog. By finding out about your needs, we can advise you on the best model to answer your question. We would never use the same model for a symptoms-oriented strategy and for a disease-modifying enquiry.

As experts in the use of rodent models, we can also analyze your own model to determine its relevance. For us, an efficient model is stable, can be used to monitor quantifiable parameters and is translational.
