A few words from our CEO:

“In recent decades, research in medicine and biology has seen remarkable technicological advancements, enabling the characterization of living organisms at the molecular level. Progress has been made in various areas, including the number of measured parameters, access to new information, precision of measurements, cost reduction, automation of measurement processes, and the ability to work with samples as small as single cells.

This has resulted in an explosion in the volume and complexity of the molecular data generated, both in basic research and during clinical development. Concurrently, biological knowledge for interpreting and analyzing this data is expanding, and algorithms are becoming more sophisticated.

AltraBio stands at the crossroads of these paths: Data, Knowledge and Methods.

With our multidisciplinary expertise and over 15 years of experience in the field, AltraBio can analyze molecular and clinical data from R&D projects and extract relevant information for academic and private researchers.

Moreover, through proprietary and unique artificial intelligence methods, AltraBio replicates human expertise for the analysis of cytometry data, enabling pharmaceutical companies to automatically and quickly analyze this type of data during their clinical trials.

These diverse capabilities are reflected in numerous scientific articles.”
