CRO to offer TRAC gene expression analysis for pre-clinical ADME-Tox studies.

Plexpress has announced a new collaboration with the contract research organisation (CRO), Admescope, which will now include TRAC as part of its services for investigating in vitro drug interactions and pre-clinical ADME-Tox responses.

Admescope customers can now take advantage of the benefits offered by Plexpress’ novel TRAC (Transcript Analysis with the aid of Affinity Capture) technology.

These include higher sample throughput, increased assay speed and reduced technical variation when compared to similar gene expression analyses undertaken using qPCR or microarrays.

In the first instance, Admescope will offer Plexpress’ well-validated multiplex assays targeting the Cytochrome P450 (CYP) family, which can be used as an insightful indicator of potential drug toxicity and efficacy.

The new service is particularly well suited to meeting recent draft recommendations from the FDA, which suggest that CYP mRNA analysis might be more informative for drug metabolism studies than measuring CYP activity.
