MicroMatrices offers services and technologies to facilitate smarter compound selection and de-risk drug development by resolving targets that might not be detected with currently available platforms. We specialise in multiparameter analytics for in vitro 3D cell cultures, known to be more predictive and human-relevant than 2D cultures.
Our SpheroMatrices® (patent pending) enhanced analytics for 3D cell cultures, a spheroid tissue microarray technology, can be used to assess complex responses earlier in development to weed out compounds that might cause issues further down the pipeline.
We use a suite of pathology-guided molecular toxicological approaches in combination with innovative visualisation/localisation technologies which can add significantly enhanced resolving power to standard in vitro assays.
We can also adopt these approaches to FFPE tissues from in vivo studies, a cost and time effective method which unlocks the potential of these tissues for investigating mechanisms of toxicity and improving predictive capability.
Since 2011, MicroMatrices innovative and collaborative investigations have produced valuable information, saving time and money, for our clients in the areas of Early Discovery, Preclinical Safety & Efficacy, Toxicology, Biomarker Discovery and Investigative Toxicology.
We look forward to meeting Pharma companies and CROs to discuss areas of mutual interest in Berlin.

NIHR Clinical Research Network
Exhibiting at booth 82
Funded by UK government, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) is the clinical research delivery arm of the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We support rapid study set-up and patient recruitment into all phases of clinical research studies, across all therapeutic areas.
We’ve recruited over three million patients into clinical studies in the NHS over the last five years and created a thriving environment for conducting large scale commercial contract clinical research, so that life sciences companies can allocate clinical studies to the UK with confidence. At the core of this success is our Study Support Service - a package of free-of-charge services covering the life cycle of a clinical study including feasibility, set-up, costings and contracts, and performance monitoring to enable recruitment to agreed time and target.
Talk to us to find out more about what we can do for you.

Oncimmune is a leading early cancer detection company. It has pioneered the development of autoantibody assay technologies that have the potential to allow cancer detection up to four years earlier than other methods and can be applied to a wide range of solid tumour types.
We are also applying autoantibody profiling to patient stratification in immuno-oncology, where we measure how the immune system is recognising the presence of tumour antigens.
Dr Michael FisherCommercial Director
OxStem is a drug discovery company, spun-out from the University of Oxford, with the unique vision of developing in-situ cell programming therapies to treat what are typically (but certainly not exclusively) age-related conditions, such as Dementia, Heart Failure, Macular Degeneration (the leading cause of blindness in the developed world), Diabetes and Oncology.
The idea is straightforward - to use the Stem Cell and Medicinal Chemistry expertise within Chemistry and its associated partners at Oxford to identify new classes of drugs that can re-program or stimulate existing endogenous cells - awakening previously defunct or dormant cellular processes.
