    "Reliable, ready-to-use, and controlled intestinal absorption in vitro model”

    Oroxcell makes available the most relevant Caco-2 cells clone.


    WE DELIVER mature, ready to use, Caco-2/TC7 cells on Transwell inserts.

    Since 2004, we used this specific Caco-2 cells clone to tests over 3 000 pharmaceuticals, and our model is continuously qualified with reference molecules, to ensure quality and reproducibility.

    Caco-2 cell line is used in in vitro models to study intestinal absorption and also for preclinical research such as:

    • Intestinal Pharmacology
    • Intestinal Absorption, including BCS Biowaiver studies: The BCS is well established as a valid approach for waiving the requirements for in vivo BA and BE studies of Class I and Class III drugs and is used to support dossiers of novel oral drug products and generic drug development.
    • Toxicology of the Intestine

    Caco-2 / TC7 cell clone was isolated from a late passage of the parental Caco-2 line and has shown to consist of a more homogeneous population with respect to the most representative functions of the small intestinal enterocytes with more developed intercellular junctions.
