AxoSim is dedicated to improving preclinical pharmaceutical development. Using microengineered Nerve-on-a-Chip (TM) technology, AxoSim facilitates the prediction of neurological safety and efficacy early in the drug development pipeline. By providing an advanced, 3D cell-based alternative to animal testing, pharmaceutical companies will have access to high content data faster and earlier than currently possible.

Our diverse team of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs are committed to tackling critical problems in pharmaceutical research. Utilizing technology originally developed in the lab of Dr. Michael J. Moore at Tulane University, we utilize a benchtop model of the nervous system to advance the safety and manage the costs of bringing novel pharmaceuticals to market.

Our team is ready for an initial consultation to determine client needs and tailor an experimental plan to best meet those needs. A dedicated employee will also be available throughout the process to ensure that expectations are met. We pride ourselves in ensuring that client goals are clear and line up directly and efficiently with our available services.

AxoSim fabricates 3D hydrogel scaffolds which encourage the development of a mixed population of cells, introducing polarity, migration, axon outgrowth and myelination. These conditions replicate the environment found in living organisms. Our models can be cultured for months, and have the potential to be tailored based on different therapeutic applications.

AxoSim's facilities are equipped to measure changes in electrophysiology, neurite outgrowth, nerve density, fiber type, degree of myelination, and cell integrity following either acute or chronic exposure to compounds of interest. Range finding experiments can also be performed for concentration dependent effects.

During the process, AxoSim manages all aspects of the research, culminating with an intensive high-level report and presentation discussing all available data. During the client presentation, potential implications will be discussed and any client questions will be addressed.
