Mechanism of Action Studies


Mechanism of Action studies performed at HemoGenix 


Mechanism of Action (MOA) studies are integral to understanding the how, why, where and when of a compound response. HemoGenix® combines its expertise in predictive tissue and organ toxicity testing with MOA studies that help indicate where the compound is acting, how and when it is acting and why the cells are responding in such a way.


For more information on MOA services, please contact HemoGenix® at or call (719) 264-6250. These services are also available through Science Exchange.
