“Diseases of the nervous system pose one of the greatest challenges in modern day drug discovery. At Cellectricon we have built up specialist expertise and an advanced technology platform which enables us to investigate modulators of disease in excitable cells such as neurons. With our service offering, we can help our customers gain vital physiologically-relevant insight to progress research in the area.”

Susanne Lardell

Senior Scientist

At Cellectricon we have a particular focus on diseases of the CNS and chronic pain. Our technology is ideally suited for use with excitable cells and using native neurons we can create model systems for registering changes in neural activity, both at the cellular and network level. In this way, we can help identify novel modulators of synaptic function and neurotransmitter release in excitable cells, which can have important roles in a multitude of CNS / chronic pain diseases:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Schizophrenia
  • Chronic pain
