  • NewsOur Mission with iPRECIO® Product Portfolio:-
    1) Make it as easy as possible to evaluate efficacy of molecules/agents in different animal models and species.

    2) Make the results as relevant as possible to the clinic. (Exposure profile, quantitative pharmacology, untethered free moving (stress free, group housing (socialization), ..…)

    The use of iPRECIO® pumps will have a positive impact on experimental conditions and the relevance of results achieved. Initial costs maybe higher but in the long run the use of the pump could be cost saving in the context of the whole compound development.

  • News5-HT produces blood pressure lowering effect.
    “The findings of this study are consistent with the initial hypothesis that 5-HT would produce a blood pressure lowering effect when the pump was turned on and blood pressure would return to normal when the pump was turned off. (0.2μl/hour) However, we did discover that instead of a dose response to 5-HT, we were able to achieve an equivalent effect at a much lower dose than had been previously studied.”
