Why the need – Pharmaceuticals

Why the need – Pharmaceuticals

The dearth of human safety and efficacy data for thousands of drugs is largely attributable to inadequate in vitro systems that are unable to accurately predict the effects of compound exposure on relevant human cells, tissues, and organs.  A clear need prevails for systems that can effectively evaluate more life-like environments for drug testing (SciFlow 1000).  These more life-like environments need to incorporate kinetic fluid exposures with realistic compound/metabolite ratios while having non-linear compound gradients and repeated exposures over time.
