Our Mission is to provide our customers with confidence in key decisions at critical stages of drug discovery. Our Vision is to become indispensable to our customers as a trusted partner and provider of high quality drug discovery contract research services and products. We are determined to always offer the most current, relevant, informative, and predictive models of human disease. We are proud to bring a great and versatile collection of reliable research tools to help new ideas grow and discoveries happen.

BioAspect offers preclinical research services – specializing in efficacy and proof-of-principle studies using cellular, transgenic Drosophila, and rodent models of human diseases – to identify health benefits of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and nutraceutical products. Located right in the heart of the Toronto research district, BioAspect is your neighbourhood biotechnology company.

Established in 2010, BioAspect is the go-to biotech products and research company in the area. We develop and distribute over 500,000 reliable research tools including ELISA kits, recombinant and native proteins, antibodies, competent cells, and PCR products amongst others. For contract research services, we offer drosophila and mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases, ageing, longevity, addiction, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and natural health products, in addition to behavioural testing.

In vitro Disease Models

Price on request

We offer cell-based in vitro models to use as the first step in biological evaluation of the effects of treatment. These tests are fast, cost-effective and designed for screening of large number of agents. They provide information about efficacy, toxicity, as well as an insight into the mechanism of action.

We offer cell-based in vitro models to use as the first step in biological evaluation of the effects of treatment. These tests are fast, cost-effective and designed for screening of large number of agents. They provide information about efficacy, toxicity, as well as an insight into the mechanism of action.

Our cell-based models use relevant cell types, expressing targeted pathways. Possible readouts include markers of cell metabolic activity and viability, apoptosis, oxidative stress, or other disease-specific endpoints. To gain insight into the mechanism of action, we offer gene and protein expression analysis. We employ qPCR and gene pathway finder arrays. For protein quantification by ELISA we can use any kit from our extensive catalog of more than 200, 000 products.

Assessment of the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile and oral bioavailability (for oral drugs) of lead compounds in the early stages of a drug discovery greatly reduces attrition in drug development. For CNS drugs, minimal acceptable brain exposure has to be achieved to make a lead a viable development candidate. Concurrent optimisation of PK, oral bioavailability, and pharmacological activity is the best strategy to shorten the lead optimisation process and reduce the risk of failure.

We carry out PK studies in rats and mice. We offer any combination of the following:

  • Help with selection of dosing vehicle
  • Solubility testing in selected dosing vehicles
  • Compound stability study in dosing vehicle
  • Compound stability study in animal blood or tissue homogenate
  • Development and validation of analytical methods for determination of compound concentration in plasma/serum, or tissue homogenate
  • Compound dosing by oral, intravenous, or subcutaneous routes
  • Collection of plasma/serum samples or organs
  • Determination of compound concentration in plasma/serum or tissue homogenate
  • Calculation of PK parameters
  • Detailed study protocol and report
  • Expert advice on ways to improve absorption and metabolism, including in silico modelling
