Mirum Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company founded by Alex Dorenbaum, Niall O'Donnell, and Susan Dubé in 2018. This company focuses on the development and commercialization of therapies for debilitating liver diseases. It is involved in the development of Maralixibat for the treatment of pediatric patients with progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis, or PFIC, and Alagille syndrome, or ALGS. The company is also involved in the development of volixibat for the treatment of adult patients with cholestatic liver diseases.
AnimalBiome is a biotechnology company founded by Alex Martin, Carlton Osborne, and Holly Ganz in 2016. This company provides personalized nutrition services to improve the gut health of dogs and cats. AnimalBiome’s microbiome tests characterize the gut microbiome of individual pets to help provide useful nutrition recommendations. It’s restorative supplements are made with material sourced directly from healthy pets to introduce missing beneficial microbes and balance the microbiome.
CellChorus, founded in 2017 provides detailed and dynamic analyses of single cells for biopharmaceutical companies. The company’s TIMING™ platform applies visual AI to monitor cell activation, killing, and movement as a function of time in order to maximize our understanding of the cellular function, state and phenotype of immuno-oncology, and other therapies.
QuantumCyte is a technology platform company founded by Bidhan Chaudhuri and John Butler in 2013. This company developed an ‘in-situ lysis’ method for isolating complex regions of interest (ROIs) from FFPE tissue slides. Their main product is an automated tissue dissection system that uses digital tissue maps to isolate ROIs that contain informative biomarkers for treatment decision support.
Culture Biosciences, founded by Matthew Ball and Will Patrick in 2016, develops automated bio-reactors that help biotech companies optimize their manufacturing processes and bring products to market faster. This company also builds automated tools for fermentation.
AnimalBiome, CellChorus, Quantumcyte and Culture Biosciences are powered by Scispot's operating platform. The companies use their personalized Scispot to design and automate their workflows at all R&D stages, from planning, lab execution to reporting collaboratively.
Scispot creates a connected digital replica of these innovative bioscience companies. It centralizes company-wide data, templatizes routine research and automates non-scientific tasks.
Lab Management Software for Modern Biotech Companies: Scispot.io
Scispot has become the primary lab management software of choice for numerous life science startups, including emerging animal health, diagnostics, biomanufacturing, and lab-grown meat companies.
Scispot creates a connected digital replica of these innovative bioscience companies. It centralizes their company-wide data, templatizes routine research and automates non-scientific tasks. It makes other lab software such as electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) and lab information management systems (LIMS) redundant.
