METABOLIC DISEASES

METABOLIC DISEASES

Metabolism related disorders, such as diabetes and obesity are key therapeutic areas that have attracted global attention over recent years. Fluofarma and Porsolt have in place a comprehensive range of models to assist with the development of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment and reduction of risk factors associated with metabolic diseases...

IN VIVO SERVICES FOR METABOLIC SYNDROME

 

Through PORSOLT capabilities, we offer to perform in vivo studies in predictive models of metabolic syndrome:

> Genetic and diet-induced in vivo models of obesity (Ob/Ob genetic model and high fat diet-induced obesity model) and diabetes (Db/Db genetic model and high fat diet-induced diabetes model)

> LC-MS/MS analysisDetection of metabolic factors, cytokines, etc., on tissue lysate or blood & derivatives (PBMC & blood samples, monocytes, macrophages,...)

> High content histology: Automated tissue imaging and multiplexed analysis of key markers with single-cell resolution (biomarker expression levels & subcellular localization).
