Invicro is a leading provider of quantitative imaging biomarkers, core lab services and software solutions for research and drug development, and Munich-based iThera Medical develops unique multispectral optoacoustic imaging technologies enabling non-invasive, real-time visualization of anatomical, functional and molecular information in living tissue at high spatial resolution. This collaboration will deliver more versatile and accurate imaging biomarkers for preclinical drug discovery research, while reducing the duration and costs of biopharmaceutical drug development.
“We are pleased to partner with iThera Medical to jointly offer enhanced pre-clinical imaging capabilities with the MSOT inVision platform,” said Ms. Ciara Finucane, MSc, Senior Director and Business Leader of Discovery Research at Invicro. “Combining iThera Medical’s technology with Invicro’s advanced quantitative imaging biomarkers offers our Pharma and Biotech sponsors a comprehensive and efficient solution to answer their research questions faster.”
“With this partnership, iThera Medical and Invicro continue to strengthen their strategy jointly to offer global pharma, biotech, and academic research communities the industry’s most premium imaging, analytics and technology solutions to support the complete drug discovery value chain,” stated Mr. Tullio Giannitti, General Manager, Americas at iThera Medical. “This collaboration is further proof of the value that MSOT imaging brings to clients in drug discovery.
