DefiniGEN is a game-changing company headquartered in Cambridge, UK, with a mission to navigate drug development programs through uncertain terrain, minimizing risk while reducing costs and paving the way for a more efficient and effective future in the field of drug discovery. Our technology is revolutionizing liver models for efficacy and toxicology screening, utilizing a platform that enables the large-scale generation of hepatocyte-like cells ( Opti-Heps) with functional relevance comparable to human primary cells.
Our Opti-Heps effectively simulate crucial aspects of disease pathophysiology across various liver conditions, providing a more accurate understanding for drug development. By integrating CRISPR/Cas9 technology, DefiniGEN replicates disease phenotypes catering to unmet needs for in vitro efficacy testing and enabling the study of previously inaccessible rare monogenic liver diseases.
