Mitochondria based cell models that have yielded EMA and FDA approved products.

A GeneStore Company

ICDD's Proprietary & extensively validated cell-based models deliver cutting-edge data points for drug and companion diagnostic development.


Billions of years ago life learned how to breathe

and produce energy.

The mitochondria developed somewhere between 1.8 billion to 580 million years ago via endosymbiosis (when eukaryotic cell engulfs a bacteria) accompanied by gene transfer from endosymbiont to host.

Mitochondria are central organelles in the cell. They generate cellular energy, produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) that regulate physiological processes, and are involved in the control of cell death.


Mitochondria are central to the story of aging.

Altered mitochondrial function and behavior have been recognized in CNS diseases, cancer, metabolic diseases and more generally age-associated diseases.

Drug-induced modifications of mitochondrial function and behavior, when unintended, are associated with severe side effects.

Mitochondrial function and behavior are phenotypic readouts that can characterize patient-derived disease cell models, drug response, and tolerance elements.


From target discovery to a mechanism of action to toxicity profiling; ICDD's cell models enable it all.

Leverage ICDD's extensively curated BioBank for pharmaceutical research and validation using ICDD cell models.

ICDD has developed expertise in the development and validation of patient-derived cell models to increase results translatability. We favor primary cell models. Stem cell-derived pertinent cell models for specific diseases can be also be provided.
