Early Cardiac Safety Assessment

Our experience using High Precision QT Analysis allows sponsors to receive TQT-like statistical power in early phase clinical trials. This allows sponsors to de-risk drug candidates by receiving a more precise indicator of arrhythmia liability prior to late stage development investment, thus saving considerable time and money.
