drug discovery services

Thanks to close collaborations with the hospital, we have been able to develop appropriate models that mirror human diseases. Because they express same oscillatory biomarkers as the ones found in human patients, outcomes from our rodent models easily translate. This makes our approach highly predictive, results being unbiased and reliable.

of rodent models

Rodent models combine the right conditions to approximate human brain disorders, faithfully copying several characteristics of the diseases. As it doesn’t rely on behavioral information, Cue®makes a relevant, yet unexploited information visible and measurable.

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.

Your Drug Discovery programs can therefore benefit from insights you may have been missing so far thanks to:

  • Multisite recording of electrical activity in the brain of freely moving animals
  • Identification of translational biomarkers between rodent models and patients – and vice versa
  • Clinical protocols – crossover: Longitudinal studies are performed, the same animal being used as its own control all along the study course.

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 by 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.
