Company Summary

Gyrasol's tools unleash the potential of targeted drugs for personalized medicine companies. Our assays use minute cellular samples in drug discovery (HTS) and biopsies in diagnostics (CoDx) to test the response of many signaling enzymes to specific targeted drugs. Our proprietary platform solves a technical roadblock that previously made intelligent therapy prediction impractical: the ability to generate predictive and diverse computable data.
