Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) May 06, 2016
Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. announced today that it will feature AsedaSciences® in an upcoming episode, airing third quarter 2016, via Discovery Channel. Dates and show times TBA.
AsedaSciences® was established in 2012 with the vision of becoming a leader in optimized drug discovery through innovative cellular analysis. In this segment, viewers will learn how AsedaSciences utilizes flow cytometry to produce robust, multiplexed, cell-based screens that identify the physiological effect of target compounds on human cells.
In addition, the show will explore its integration of high throughput phenotypic screens with sophisticated data reduction, which provides the global pharmaceutical industry with real time toxicity risk assessment earlier in the R&D process.
“AsedaSciences® is developing a sensitive, robust platform to assess toxicity risk in the development of new chemical entities before they become significant financial liabilities later in development. By combining reproducible human cell-based screens, bioinformatics and cloud computing into a single predictive platform, AsedaSciences can help companies identify and mitigate potential risk in the earliest stages of the drug discovery process. This provides a cost-effective tool to assist the pharmaceutical industry in their efforts to reduce late-stage compound attrition and avert potential safety issues in human clinical trials. We’re excited to participate in the Innovations series to share our progressive approach to long-standing industry practices used in toxicity risk assessment,” said Brad Calvin, President, AsedaSciences.
“AsedaSciences’ innovative, integrated approach of ‘screen, analyze, visualize,’ will allow the delivery of complex, multi-parametric, biologically rich information in a simplified form that enables rapid and informed decisions on compound progression earlier in the drug discovery process,” said Michele Nehls, Senior Producer for the series. “We look forward to enlightening the public on this groundbreaking platform.”
AsedaSciences provides multi-parametric, high content, high throughput phenotypic screening services to the pharmaceutical industry. The company’s unique platform utilizes the inherent strengths of flow cytometry, automated processes and sophisticated analysis of similarity to condense complex biology into multi-parametric ‘fingerprints’ for comparison between known and unknown compounds, delivering elegantly packaged analytics to enable well informed decisions earlier in the drug discovery process.
