Cell-based assays are critical to the drug discovery process, but they are slow and costly. To produce safer and more effective drugs, researchers demand test systems and measurement tools that increase the information and insight gained by these assays.
With its patented optical sensing technology, Lucid Scientific produces systems for continuous, real-time oxygen consumption monitoring of cell-based assays. These systems yield data to improve baseline experimental controls, understand the response dynamics of different cell types to candidate drug compounds, and identify critical time points within an experiment. The result is faster, lower-cost research that brings safer and more effective drugs to clinical trial.
