Description ScitoVation, a subsidiary of SciMetrika, LLC, is dedicated to understanding how chemical compounds affect human health. We help our clients develop safer and more effective pharmaceuticals, food ingredients, agricultural chemicals, commodity chemicals and consumer products. ScitoVation aims to support and advance new human systems biology based approaches to compound safety and efficacy testing. These approaches involve development of new assays that use human cells or cell lines to characterize biological response, dose-response models to quantify when perturbations in cellular signaling pathways are significantly altered in cells and tissues, and in vitro-in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) tools to predict the level and duration of exposure that is likely to result in effects in humans.
