Aging Animal Models

Price on request

Whether you need a screen of an antioxidant for its life promoting effects, or need to determine efficacy in a compound that boosts defective homeostatic mechanisms needed for longevity, we have customized our lifespan/healthspan assay for maximal effect detection. Our proprietary approach has been used by over a dozen labs and pharmas. 


  • Translatable Lifespan. Our platform provides lifespan measurements in addition to healthspan data. Often a platform that focuses solely on healthspan will fail to follow an animal for the entirety of their lifespan. Yet one needs lifespan data to enable claims on a compound's ability to extend longevity. Our longevity readout provides both a Kaplan-Meier estimate of survival and a hazard rate curve - two functions that are the industry standard for modeling survival and are widely used in worm, mouse, and human studies.
  • Genetic Signature. Our standard platform gives information about how the genetic pathways are regulated in response to the compound, which can provide patentable information about the MoA.
  • Export Reports and Access. Our reports deliver graphs that are Marketing & IP ready. We pride ourselves on the thoroughness and interpretability of the results.
  • Experts on Tap. All our projects include on-call project status updates, as well as regularly scheduled communication. We also provide on-call consulting and interpretation with our Ph.D. level, subject-matter experts.

In vivo Drug Efficacy Testing

Price on request

Compound Efficacy Assessment and Formulation Analysis. We can quickly and economically test a compound’s ability to extend lifespan and healthspan with large sample sizes (up to 120 million data points) of live animals in less than 5 months and get answers to the following questions:

  • Does my compound have a positive or negative effect on lifespan?
  • How does my compound affect lifespan AND healthspan?
  • Which are the associated signaling pathways that contributed to the life extension?
