High-content screening for AI-drug discovery
Our platform benefits from new technologies that have been widely developed in recent years :
AI, cellular imaging, robotization
The convergence of these technologies and the close collaboration of data scientists and biologists make it possible to create biological models of very large size and significance.
an intracellular platform to detect protein interactions in living cells
An interaction between bait and prey indeed leads to the appearance of this characteristic structure in the fluorescence image of the prey. Protein interaction can then be easily distinguished in the cell cytoplasm and should allow a highly sensitive detection scheme by using numerical tools.
We are always looking for more collaboration partners who are interested in potential drug candidates for their specific diseases and in accessing to our technology.
Solve complex systems like Protein-Protein Interactions with our convergence of High-Content Screening and Artificial Intelligence
Accelerate and unrisk your R&D.
Understand the mode of action of your drug candidate in biological systems with the aid of Molecular Modeling.
