The company is using the MANTRA system to characterize synaptic dysfunctions in disease models and to identify signatures of therapeutic compound classes.


CellXplore is a new, biotechnology company engaged in the development of biomarker-based in vitro diagnostic assays for cancer, initially focusing on breast cancer. Although mammography is an effective screening test for early detection, there is a need for a simple, reliable and sensitive biomarker-based in vitro assay that can be used to stage and characterize breast cancer.nThe company was formed to commercialize groundbreaking discoveries demonstrating up-regulation of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway in cancerous breast tissue, providing the capability for the noninvasive detection of breast cancer and the ability to monitor the efficacy of chemotherapeutic interventions.nCellXplore's platform technology is not restricted to breast cancer in vitro diagnostics alone, nor is it restricted to cancer diagnostics alone. Beyond cancer, CellXplore is already investigating whether similar blood sample biomarkers can be identified for the early diagnosis of several major debilitating diseases such as muscle wasting, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and inflammatory diseases.
