Virginia Beach, Va. (March 21, 2022) – LifeNet Health LifeSciences, a leader in all-human biomedical research solutions, will showcase a unique new triculture system during the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting and ToxExpo in San Diego, March 27-31. The triculture system is the first all-human liver model to offer unparalleled human relevance, along with a new level of reproducibility and predictability.

LifeNet Health LifeSciences will also offer a live exhibitor-hosted session and four poster presentations at SOT – in addition to showcasing a full portfolio of human-based cell, biospecimen, and cell-model solutions, including primary human hepatocytes and liver non-parenchymal cells; snap frozen and FFPE block liver tissue samples; healthy and diseased tissues for comparative studies; and a prospective research biospecimen program.

“Increasingly, use of human cells and tissues is a must-have during every stage of the drug discovery pipeline,” said Louis Dias, General Manager of LifeNet Health LifeSciences. “Our unique innovations bring new levels of precision and consistency to in vitro biology, to accelerate development of safer, more effective treatments.”

SOT attendees can learn more by visiting the LifeNet Health LifeSciences subject matter experts at booth #2204. Additional activities during the meeting include:

  • Chief Scientist Ed LeCluyse, PhD, will offer an exhibitor-hosted session on the new LifeNet Health LifeSciences triculture system on March 28 from 9 to 10 a.m. PST.
