Asterand, Inc.

Product Description

Asterand plc is the leading global provider of high quality, well characterized human tissue and human tissue-based research solutions to drug discovery scientists. (Our mission is to provide human-based solutions to accelerate the identification and validation of drug targets and enhance the selection of drug candidates with an increased likelihood of clinical success).

Asterand plc has a well established human tissue heritage, having been formed in 2006 through the merger of Asterand (founded 2000), a human tissue biorepository and Pharmagene (founded 1996) a human tissue-based drug discovery company. Our expertise has been further strengthened following the acquisition of BioSeek in February 2010. BioSeek (founded 2000) brings proprietary, primary cell-based models of human disease biology that provide early insight into human pharmacological and toxicological properties of compounds through comparison of resulting data profiles with an established and growing database of profiles for known compounds.

With this background and capability in human tissue procurement, characterization and research, Asterand is uniquely positioned to provide a comprehensive approach to meet the research needs of pharmaceutical, biotechnology and diagnositic companies, as well as academia. From our offices in Detroit, MI Royston, U.K. and San Francisco, CA, we have more than 100 employees focused on providing services and products to accelerate drug discovery research from target identification through to compound evaluation and drug safety.
