Mestastop Solutions, a biotechnology startup, has raised Rs 1.3 crore or $173K in its seed round led by CIIE.CO. IKP Knowledge Park and angels have also participated.
According to the Bengaluru-based startup, the funds will be used to scale its AI-based platform METSCAN, which characterises cancer cells using patient data samples and their assay panels to understand the cell behaviour.
It will further be utilised for running PoC animal model studies to validate proof of concept for Cancer drug discovery and repurposing.
Founded by Arnab Roy Chowdhury and Debabani Roy Chowdhury, Mestastop is creating a cancer metastasis focussed platform, which uses wet lab biology and predictive analytics to identify and distinguish unique properties of metastasis and leverage them for drug discovery and patient treatment.
