Unmet needs of existing technology
The research of a new drug discovery targeting ion channels was previously impossible to access due to the absence of specialized research platform and electrophysiologists with expertise. Electrophysiological analysis using high level of patch-clamp technique is the key, but it was difficult to apply to the research of for a new drug discovery due to the lack of expertise and limitation for the low efficiency.
Strength of VITVO platform
iN Therapeutics has all levels of patch-clamp equipments required for drug discovery research targeting ion channels to establish VITVO platform, and also has its own technology that enables compound synthesis, HIT screening and evaluation of in vivo efficacy and PoC with professional researchers. With the new drug discovery research environment and platform technology, the company greatly improved the research environment.
