About Us

We help clients assess chemical compound safety to develop safer and more effective pharmaceuticals, food ingredients, agricultural chemicals, commodity chemicals, and consumer products. At the frontline of next generation risk assessment (NGRA), we develop customized cell-based assays to determine safety, model chemical disposition in the body, and analyze and interpret genetic data. Our solutions save our clients time and money by bringing their products to market faster.

ScitoVation and BioSpyder are excited to introduce our new transcriptomics analysis package, ScitoXpress™. ScitoXpress™ provides important information about points of departure (POD) and potential modes of action (MoA) for our clients’ compounds. ScitoXpress™ characterizes chemical risk cost-efficiently and rapidly.

Because changes in gene expression precede changes in phenotype, a robust transcriptomics package like ScitoXpress™ can provide answers at lower doses compared to disease or tumor endpoints are typical used in in vivo studies. ScitoXpress™ offers the additional advantages of:

  • Providing utility in guiding additional studies, resulting in cost- and time-savings
  • Being based on a rigorous scientific approach, applied by experts
  • Having the support of U.S. EPA
