Project: Automated Cardiomyocyte Contractility Assay Instrument

Acronym CARDIOCONTRACT (Reference Number: 12529)
Duration 01/10/2018
Project Topic We will develop the QPid instrument and CPlate analysis kits, a complete system for contractility analysis of hu-man heart cell (cardiomyocyte) based tissue constructs exposed to drug candidates. We will deliver a solution to a need for high-throughput functional cardiotoxicity screening in industrial drug development. Our solution will strongly reduce cost (much fewer expensive cardiomyocytes per analysis) and strongly increase data quality and end-user experience over existing products.
