ChanTest Announces a Complimentary Webinar on the Use of the xCELLigence System
Date:3/19/2013

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Cardiovascular (CV) toxicity is a leading contributor to drug withdrawal and late-stage attrition in the drug discovery process. There is an urgent need for novel in vitro assays that enable earlier and broader testing for CV activity.

ChanTest has developed a new assay using ACEA Bioscience’s xCELLigence system to measure contractility and cardiotoxicity. On Wednesday, March 20th at 1:00 p.m. EST, ChanTest will host “Get with the Beat! A New In Vitro Assay for Cardiotox and Contractility in Human Cells”, a complimentary webinar to explain the importance and advantages of this new assay.

Andrew Bruening-Wright, PhD, Principal Scientist at ChanTest, will provide a comprehensive overview on the evaluation of contractile activity of stem cell-derived human cardiomyocytes using impedance analysis and Dr. Dinah Misner, from Genentech, a board-certified toxicologist, will discuss her group's experience with this new xCELLigence Cardio assay.
