Products that are being evaluated or developed
In this section we would like to introduce you to the topics we are working on in order to be able to help you even better in the future.
All projects are carried out by the non-profit company TherapySelect non-profit gUG (haftungsbeschränkt) (TSnp).
Under the scientific direction of Dr. Frank Kischkel, TSnp's research and development is focused on the development and clinical validation or evaluation of oncological diagnostics.
Our laboratory is specially equipped for the processing of tumor tissue, the enrichment of tumor cells and the measurement of primary cells. Patient samples are professionally processed under sterile conditions, prepared for the individual tests and then measured in special equipment.
In addition to the laboratory equipment required for this, the laboratory works in accordance with quality management requirements. The diagnostic tests used for the clinical studies are certified in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) and standardized by means of standard operating procedures (SOPs).
In addition to laboratory training for sterile work, the processing of primary tissue and normal cell cultivation, our staff also have the relevant experience in carrying out functional, protein-chemical and molecular biological tests.
The proximity to the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the close cooperation with various working groups at the DKFZ ensure a continuous exchange of specialist knowledge, practical experience and the latest research results.
CTR-Test® - expansion of testable drugs
The CTR-Test® is able to identify ineffective drugs with a very high probability (>95%) before the start of chemotherapy. With 18 clinical studies, the procedure is the best-validated test system of its kind. In order to have a future-proof technology available for the growing number of drugs - particularly in the area of targeted substances - a further development is to be created. New drugs will then be validated in the system.
