Absorption Systems

Absorption Systems is a preclinical contract research organization assisting pharmaceutical and medical device companies in identifying and overcoming ADMET (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, and Toxicity) barriers in the development of drugs and medical devices. The company's mission is to continually develop innovative research tools that can be used to accurately predict human outcomes or to explain unanticipated human outcomes when they occur. We believe that projects should be viewed as a collaboration, allowing us to design studies and develop custom models when necessary.
