Celldynamics is an innovative startup that designs and provides a new generation of instruments to improve drug development and other biomedical sciences.
CellDynamics is an innovative start-up that designs and provides a new generation of instruments for a more reliable Medicine. CellDynamics is aimed at the world of the development of new drugs and intervenes in order to contrast the exponential growth of the costs of discovery observed in the last 60 years. Today the development of a new molecule costs about one billion euros, while in 1950 only 50 million. With an innovative and patented technology, CellDynamics develops the instrument CELLviewer, which is a high performance solution to improve the effectiveness of the initial phase of drug development: the preclinical phase in biological laboratories (in Vitro), before animal experimentation. This improvement also goes in the direction of providing a valid solution to respond to an ethical and normative duty, as indicated by the World Health Organization, to reduce the number of animals sacrificed in medical trials each year. CELLviewer allows to perform in vitro studies on cells with greater representativeness compared to the methods currently used, and to achieve a reduction in costs and development time of drugs. CELLviewer is realized in two main parts: the instrument (with a one-off sale) and a specific consumable or disposable component (with a repeated sale over time): it is a versatile business model that offers different sales formulas that they can be designed on the needs of the individual customer. Since its operational start in 2015, CellDynamics has developed strategic partnerships with the CNR (National Research Council), with the Universities of Bologna and Milan and with several other leading national and international research institutions as well as a recent marketing collaboration with one of the largest multinational companies in optics and medical instruments.
