25 Mar Platelet Services Ltd moves to BioCity Nottingham
Platelet Services Ltd, a contract research organisation providing pre-clinical services in platelet testing moved to BioCity Nottingham facilities in March this year.
Platelet Services offers standard and customised platelet testing assays to determine the effect of compounds, or other agents, on platelet function. The company can support drug discovery and development teams either by assessing the activity and potency of agents aimed as anti-platelet drugs, or ruling out possible platelet-related side-effects for compounds targeting platelet-unrelated conditions. Through the specialist assays offered by Platelet Services, drug discovery companies will be able to better understand the effect of their candidate compounds on platelet function. There is an increasing need for such studies as new targets are explored in areas such as proliferative diseases and in understanding the potential bleeding or thrombotic risk that may be associated with emerging drug combinations. Commenting on their recent move, Dr Natalia Dovlatova, CEO of Platelet Services said, “We are very excited to move to BioCity and network with other member companies. BioCity is known to provide a very good environment for life-science companies and offers opportunities not typically available to SMEs”.
Ann, Natalia, Andrew and Charlotte look forward to meeting you all!
