Hepregen Corporation Key Developments

SOLVO Biotechnology and Hepregen Corp. Sign Co-Marketing Pact

SOLVO Biotechnology and Hepregen Corp. reported the Study of Xenobiotics, a co-marketing agreement between the companies. This agreement provides for the European marketing of Hepregen's human, monkey, rat and dog application-directed HepatoPac and HepatoMune kits, which are used for liver metabolite analysis, transport studies and predictive and mechanistic toxicology studies. These kits contain human or animal hepatocytes (liver cells) in Hepregen's proprietary micro-patterned, co-culture microtiter tissue culture plates. This agreement provides SOLVO with the opportunity to make services available to its customers using these Hepregen products as well as HepatoPac B-CLEAR products co-developed by Hepregen and Qualyst Transporter Solutions.

Hepregen Corporation Launches First Dog HepatoPac Assay Kit to Evaluate Metabolism in the Laboratory

Hepregen Corporation announced the commercial launch of the company's first dog HepatoPac kit designed specifically for metabolite identification and profiling applications. Each kit contains one or more standard 24-well tissue culture plates featuring uniquely configured micro-patterned dog liver cells co-cultured with specially selected stromal cells that support the high level of performance observed in Hepregen's micro-patterned co-culture platform. The dog liver cells (hepatocytes) on these plates mirror the behavior of liver cells in live animals, enabling scientists to generate data that can be useful for evaluation of the metabolism of chemical agents, including drug candidates, improving the design of preclinical experiments. The remarkable flexibility of Hepregen's micro-patterned HepatoPac® platform allowed Hepregen scientists to develop a dog product that provides investigators with uniquely stable canine hepatocytes. The tissue culture maintains functionality and morphology for weeks, enabling experiments not previously possible.

Hepregen Corporation Launches Dual-Species HepatoPac™ DMPK Assay Kits for Metabolite Identification and Profiling

Hepregen Corporation announced the commercial launch of the company’s first application-oriented, dual-species HepatoPacTM kit designed specifically for use in metabolite identification and profiling. Each kit contains one standard 24-well tissue culture plate, half containing micro-patterned human hepatocytes, and the other half containing micro-patterned rat hepatocytes (available in Wistar-Hahn or Sprague-Dawley strains). The hepatocytes on these plates from both species remain fully functional for up to two months. These unique dual-species kits provide customers with a plug-in-ready product, designed for use in evaluating metabolite production in a discovery or development setting, or in any case where a quick comparative answer is beneficial.
