Curadel’s mission statement may be simple, but the technology we’ve developed isn’t. As we like to joke, “It may not be rocket science…but it is brain surgery”.
Our scientists perform basic and applied research in the field of molecular imaging, with an emphasis on creating visual contrast using otherwise invisible near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent light.
The technology we’ve developed is called FLARE®, which stands for FLuorescence-Assisted Resection and Exploration. Over the course of almost 20 years, FLARE® has evolved into a unified platform technology that combines drugs (contrast agents) with devices that can see the otherwise invisible NIR light. NIR light is everywhere but is invisible to the human eye. In fact, FLARE® systems have been engineered to use less NIR light than that found on a bright sunny day.
Working seamlessly together, FLARE® drugs and devices permit up to three independent targets to be highlighted in living subjects simultaneously and with high sensitivity and specificity. These targets might be tumors, blood vessels, nerves, lymph node, glands, or whatever else needs to be seen. Objects that would otherwise be invisible are made visible using FLARE®. Seeing is curing®…and FLARE® is lighting the way.
FLARE® technology empowers researchers to make discoveries unthinkable just a few years ago. Because Curadel originated from the laboratories of academia, we also pride ourselves on helping our clients set ambitious goals and then reaching them.
