Hepatocytes acquisition is now a critical step for research activities involved in target validation, drug discovery and clinical development.
Hepatocytes are commonly used in drug discovery and preclinical drug development to perform experiments requiring intact cellular systems. Intact hepatocytes contain the major hepatic drug-metabolizing enzymes required to study the four categories of xenobiotic biotransformation: hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation and conjugation.
Researchers face many challenges in this area, not least of which being the legal and ethical issues around sourcing tissue/cells , but also the practical challenge of sourcing quality specimens that are fit for use in a diverse range of analytical processes.
Cytes Biotechnologies, SL. has developed liver cell solutions by providing high quality, fully characterized specimens in order to promote the development of biomedical research.
