Our custom services. Your trusted CRO partner.

At Aquila, we’re proud to provide pre-clinical immunology, immuno-oncology, specialist histology and neuroscience services.

We can help you with both in vitro and in vivo proof-of-concept and mode-of-action studies in immunology, oncology and neurodegenerative diseases as well as biomarker discovery and target expression for other immune-related diseases.

Our expert scientists work closely with you to tailor our services to answer your scientific questions. If required, we can develop custom immune cell-based assays ahead of compound screening to ensure the robustness of your drug discovery platform.
