WHO WE HELP

We provide invaluable tools to accelerate R&D across different industries

Our team has rich experience helping researchers in these sectors
biotech

Biotech

Biotech professionals must progress their drug discovery R&D timelines fast in order to make the best use of their funding and IP. We help you take the jump from petri dish to mammal in vivo models with confidence and more quickly than going straight to rodent models.

biotech

Health and Manufacturing

Consumer goods, manufacturing and other industries investing in R&D want to put the best quality, eco-friendly products out on the market. However, testing your compounds for impact on environmental and human health can lead to overly complex, ethically challenging and time-consuming studies with animal models. C. elegans offer an ethical approach that can get the data you need on your compound in as little as three weeks.
