■ Company information:

This company offers a novel drug discovery technology that leverages the combination of top-notch technologies including machine learning. It offers a platform that can greatly accelerate and improve antibody drug discovery at pharmaceutical companies. This system uses a next-generation sequencer that collects a large amount of antibody blueprint-related information and uses a proprietary artificial intelligence-based analysis system (patent pending) to achieve high-speed and large-scale acquisition of high-quality antibody candidates. It searches more than 10 times as many antibody drug candidates in about 1/10 of the time than conventional methods. Yet, the company aims at more efficiency and acceleration.
