Public Profile

490 BioTech is a life sciences company developing patented protected light-emitting (bioluminescent) human cell lines genetically programmed to ‘report’ on biological events or interactions that affect their metabolic status. The firm's autobioluminescent technologies enable cells autonomously to control or continuously produce light without any external activation required. The Clinet User can choose pre-made, continuously luminescent human cell models, ready-to-use assay mixes that can make any cell glow for up to one week, robust, yeast-based environmental sensor kits, or custom solutions allow the User to garner more information with less cost and effort than ever before. The incorporation of these cell lines into cell culture and small animal preclinical efficacy/toxicity testing models does not require expensive substrates and as such is designed to accelerate the pace of new drug discovery and move drugs more rapidly and effectively towards Phase I human test
