SPS 2018

13 July, 2018

Ncardia will exhibit and present at the 2018 Safety Pharmacology Society (SPS) annual meeting in Washington, DC, USA


Meet Ncardia at SPS 2018! Take the opportunity to learn about our new solutions at the booth or over a discussion at one of our scientific posters.

  • Exhibitor-Hosted Session - Monday October 1, 7:00 - 8:00 am, Room A
    "Optogenetics and hiPSC-derived Cells - Leap into the Future of Drug Screening"
    Attend our breakfast session to gain insights into how the cardiomyocyte and multi-well microelectrode array (MEA) assay offers an ideal approach to evaluate proarrhythmic indicators in vitro, and how the addition of optogenetics provides unparalleled control of the assay. Learn how the combination of Axion BioSystems’ leading MEA technology and Ncardia’s new light-gated ion channel transfection technology provides an attractive assay for investigation of frequency-dependent responses of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes.
  • We are delighted that Ksenia Blinova, PhD, Senior Technical Laboratory Manager at FDA, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, will attend and give her talk entitled: “Multisite study of stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes assays for proarrhythmic risk assessment”.
  • Ncardia Booth #402, Sunday September 30 to Wednesday October 03, Exhibit Hall, Washington Marriott Wardman Park
    Come to visit us at booth #402 to meet our team and to let us know how we can support you.
