Charles River Acquires ChanTest
News Oct 31, 2014
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, ChanTest offers a panel of more than 120 validated assays to test ion channels, which we believe is the most comprehensive panel in the industry. ChanTest scientists are thought leaders in the field of ion channels and are currently working with the FDA on the Comprehensive in vitro Proarrhythmia Assay (CiPA) guidelines.
As researchers increasingly incorporate ion channel testing into their molecule design process, access to more comprehensive ion channel assay panels will be invaluable to supporting their drug discovery efforts. With this acquisition, we are emerging as the market-leading CRO in ion channel drug discovery and associated in vitro safety testing.
Integrated Lead Discovery: An Evolving ToolboxNews

New Ovarian Cancer TargetNews
Researchers have found a prescription drug, Calcitriol, approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of calcium deficiency and kidney diseases, may increase the likelihood of surviving ovarian cancer. This new study opens a potential avenue for treating ovarian cancer. Since Calcitriol is an FDA-approved drug, no additional research is needed before the drug can advance to human clinical trials for ovarian cancer.READ MORE
Novel Microplate 3D Bioprinting Platform for Engineering Muscle and Tendon TissuesNews
There is a strong need for medication that treats age-related degenerative muscle and tendon diseases. A critical bottleneck in the discovery and development of novel drugs for skeletal muscle is the lack of efficient and robust functional in vitro assays for compound screening. Researchers describe the development of a novel screening platform with automated production of 3D muscle- and tendon–like tissues using 3D bioprinting.READ MORE
