2021 - Participating Startup Companies
ArcoScreen is an early stage start-up with a focus on developing new drug screening tools when targeting cell membrane receptors.
Our clients are drug discovering companies interested in targeting cell membrane receptors and in particular G protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs).
We provide our client a screening service based on our novel biological assay implemented in a microfluidic chip. Thanks to our technology we can directly identify a drug's mode of action (intracellular signaling) in a single assay lasting 15min. Furthermore our assay can directly be performed on any primary cells, thus enabling a more physiologically relevant drug discovery process as the target protein will remain in it's native environment.
