Innovation Partner

AnaBios’ advanced human tissue-based methods enable a unique approach that integrates data from human ex vivo studies with preclinical animal data. We have developed the ability to test the potential efficacy and safety of new drug compounds in human tissues well in advance of clinical trials. This is made possible by a network of partnering U.S. hospitals, the utilization of proprietary tissue preservation methods and lab-based assessment of drug effects on human tissues and isolated cells. From hospital to laboratory, AnaBios maintains full oversight of the recovery process and utilization of human tissues to guarantee consistency in tissue viability.
