Metrion Biosciences – The Ion Channel Specialists

Your preferred partner for cardiac safety screening services

To ensure the safety profile of your hit compounds it is critical that you obtain reliable, high quality hERG screening data.

hERG Screening provides you with quick and reliable information regarding the potential cardiac liability of your compound due to binding to the hERG channel.

Cardiac Safety Screening Services

Metrion’s cardiac safety experts deliver the highest quality hERG screening service using validated assays on gigaseal quality manual and automated patch-clamp electrophysiology platforms.
