How Can Achlys Help You?
One of the most common off-target effects for pharmaceutical drugs is via the cardiac hERG potassium channel. Blocking this channel can cause cardiotoxicity as can other off-target reactions within the human cardiomyocyte itself. Achlys provides a novel human cardiomyocyte cell-line expressing hERG to allow functional assays for different kinds of drug-associated cardiotoxicity. In addition, Achlys offers three different but complementary services you can use to improve your drug cardiotoxicity testing.
