Cardiac Safety Screening


Metrion offers a range of high quality Cardiac Safety Screening assays, including hERG profiling and components of the Comprehensive In Vitro Proarrhythmia Assay (CiPA) initiative. This includes assays that evaluate the proarrhythmic liabilities of compounds using:

  • A extensively validated panel of cardiac ion channels, including the six CiPA ion channels, using gigaohm seal quality automated electrophysiology devices.
  • Action potentials recorded from human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes using multi-electrode array and manual patch clamp platforms.
  • The viability of human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes using an impedance platform.

Translational Assays


Translational Neuronal Assays Metrion has a range of phenotypic assay platforms to enable its customers to validate the efficacy and mechanisms of their compounds in rodent and human neurons to help translate them towards preclinical testing and eventually into clinical trials. These assays use technologies such as manual patch clamp and multi-electode array (MEA) recordings to offer a direct read-out of physiological function in native tissue or human stem cell-derived neurons. 

Translational Cardiac Safety Assays High quality cardiac toxicity data generation and interpretation is vital to the efficient progression of a drug discovery campaign. Metrion offers a range of translational cardiac assays and platforms that have been validated using commercially available iPSC-derived cardiomyocyte cell lines. 

Using technologies such as manual patch clamp electrophysiology, multi-electrode array (MEA; Maestro platform) or dual MEA/ impedance readouts (CardioExcyte96), Metrion can offer a direct readout of physiological function in the iPSC-derived cardiomyocyte cell line of your choosing. 

Please contact us if you would like any further information on our Translational Neuronal Assays or Translational Cardiac Safety Assay services.
