Kits to facilitate the development and testing of new drugs

Our kits help you in your drug discovery and development studies. They are stored and transported at room temperature, are available on demand and facilitate your drug discovery and development studies assays.

Caco-2 based Ready-to-Use permeability models

CacoReady is an innovative cell-based and ready-to-use kit. The kit consists of 24 and 96 insert-integrated permeable support seeded with differentiated and polarized Caco-2 barriers on polycarbonate microporous filters. CacoReady allows in vitro intestinal absorption evaluation of drug targets. CacoReady is flexible since plates can be used up to 5 days after ideal cell barrier differentiation at day 21. CacoReady is a time and cost-saving tool for early stage drug discovery and development.

Study the interaction of drugs with the BCRP transporter

Monolayer assays using transfected MDCKII-BRCP cells have been widely recognized tools to study the interaction of drugs with the BCRP transporter. This system is suitable for performing both inhibition and substrate assessments. MDCKII-BCRP is used to model the net transport events of important fluid compartment barriers in the organism that express BCRP at high level. BCRP transporter is present in the blood-brain-barrier, intestine, liver, kidney, testis and mammary tissue.

Model the net transport events of fluid compartment barriers

PreadyPort-MDR1 kits contains 24-insert integrated plates with differentiated MDCKII cells expressing MDR1, as well as the parental cell line. The first member of the PreadyPort™ series, the PreadyPort-MDR1 kit is revolutionary in providing a ready-to-use tool for MDCKII-MDR1 monolayer assays. The kit will allow researchers to perform MDR1 interaction studies on monolayers without bothering about cell-line licensing and culturing.

A Mucus Secreting Ready-to-use Concept for in vitro Intestinal Absorption Evaluation

CacoGoblet is a mucus-secreting ready-to-use kit. The kit contains differentiated polarized Caco-2 and human goblet cells seeded on polycarbonate microporus filters. CacoGoblet allows in vitro intestinal absorption evaluation of drug targets in a barrier physiologically closer to the intestinal epithelium. CacoGoblet is a target system for hydrophilic compounds.
