Welcome to Metrion Biosciences
Metrion Biosciences is a UK-based Contract Research Organisation (CRO) specialising in high quality ion channel drug discovery services. We are leaders in skilled electrophysiology screening to support client medicinal chemistry programmes, as well as CiPA-compliant cardiac safety profiling, neuroscience assays and translational models. Working closely with our collaborators we also offer an expert integrated drug discovery service.
Metrion offers flexible business models according to the scope of each programme, with both fee-for-service and collaborative options available.
