Cyprotex Highlights - September 2016


As well as being a contract research organization, Cyprotex spend considerable resource performing research into the development and testing of in vitro and in silico methods as alternatives to animal testing. In September, our scientists have been busy presenting this research. At Eurotox, Cyprotex presented three posters - two on 3D cell-based models and one on validation of an ocular model as part of the CON4EI (part of CEFIC) project. At the DMG meeting in London, we presented our research on skin metabolism. Our webinar on genotoxicity testing strategies also attracted a large audience. All of these resources are available to you below.

Other important announcements in September have included introduction of an additional 8 transporter assays, and expansion of our metabolite identification service for the analysis of human clinical samples. We are also delighted to welcome our new Director of US Operations, Dr Monica Metea, who joined the company on 26th September. The role will provide operational and scientific leadership to our Watertown, MA and Kalamazoo, MI facilities.

Cyprotex presents new research at Eurotox

Cyprotex presented three new posters at Eurotox from 4-7 September. Download them for free:

' Predicting neurotoxicity of the brain by normalising 3D multiplexed high content screening (HCS) data to brain tissue specific exposure levels'  


'Predicting drug-induced liver injury by normalising liver microtissue high content screening data to in vivo tissue concentrations'


'Consortium for in vitro eye irritation testing strategy: Short Time Exposure (STE) model'

Eight additional transporter assays now available

We now have services for an additional eight transporters (PEPT1, PEPT2, NTCP, OATP1A2, OATP2B1, OAT2, OAT4 and OCTN2). These complement our existing regulatory DDI transporter panel for P-gp, BCRP, OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OAT1, OAT3, OCT1, OCT2, MATE1 and MATE2K.

Watch our presentation on 'In vitro strategies for regulatory genotoxicity testing'

Cyprotex scientists Jamin Willoughby, PhD and Brandon Zeigler, PhD recently presented a webinar on best practices for regulatory genotoxicity testing with a focus on the Ames test, in vitro chromosomal aberration test and in vitro micronucleus test. The webinar is now available to watch.

New presentation on skin metabolism

Understanding skin metabolism is important for any topically applied pharmaceutical or chemical as reactive or toxic metabolites can lead to skin sensitization or other adverse effects. Senior Research Scientist, Rachel Upcott-Gill, presented our research in skin metabolism on the 19th September 2016 at the Drug Metabolism Group Summer Meeting in London.
