Overview

Invicro uniquely combines operational excellence with extensive scientific and medical expertise. Our goal is to drive the advancement of translational cancer research, aid in cancer drug development and develop imaging methods and tools that enable precision medicine. We have experience working with a wide range of therapeutics, including small molecules, peptides, antibodies, multi-specific proteins, CAR-T cells, and many more. Preclinically and clinically, Invicro offers a wide variety of oncology biomarker solutions, including:

  • Central imaging core lab for Phase 0-IV clinical studies
  • Preclinical/Clinical novel molecular imaging tracers
  • In vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo techniques spanning from preclinical to clinical
  • Core histology, multiplex Immunohistochemistry (IHC) / Immunofluorescence (IF), Quanticell™ high sensitivity immunohistochemistry (IHC), RNAScope® ISH
  • Qualitative and quantitative image analytics for radiology and pathology studies

Capabilities

Quantitative Oncology Analytics

The medical image analysis team supports standard analysis of FDG PET imaging, including PERCIST and other SUV-based metrics, metabolic tumor volume and total lesion glycolysis. The image analysis team also specializes in developing and applying a broad range of tools to support advanced quantitative oncology tracer characterization and analytics across a broad range of modalities and studies. Some examples include:

 

  • Powerful, multi-modal tumor and organ Segmentation tools
  • A range of flexible Biomathematical Modeling tools
  • Dosimetry calculations across radionuclide, administration route, and species
  • Integrated Radiomics pipelines using standard and custom feature vectors
  • Preclinical and clinical support for Tracer Characterization
  • Sophisticated batch Image Triage and preprocessing methods
