Cell Lines

In vitro assays are critical at all stages of drug discovery, but especially early in the drug discovery process, where they form the basis for developing Structure Activity Relationships in Medicinal Chemistry. These assays include biochemical as well as cell-based assays that are representative of more complex biological organisms or processes. Advinus offers a wide range biochemical, functional (cell-based), mechanistic and ex vivo (whole tissue-based) assays that provide exceptional value in making decisions towards compound selection for pharmacological efficacy studies in relevant animal models. Several of these assays are also amenable to high-throughput screening of compound libraries.  Our in vitro biology service offerings are shown below.

Our in vitro Biology services include:

In vitro Biology
■ Molecular and Cell Biology

  • Stable cell-line generation
  • Cloning and overexpression: baculoviral, mammalian
  • Protein purification and characterization
  • Immunological techniques
