SAXOCON was founded in October 2013 when entrepreneur Martin Friis-Mikkelsen and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) joined forces.
In early 2013 Martin met with the QSAR team from DTU Food. The QSAR team was looking for the right entrepreneur to bring their cutting-edge technology and world class scientific team to market. The team’s exceptional ability to analyze and interpret QSAR data had for several years been used by public authorities across Europe. SAXOCON brings the benefits and expertise of our QSAR team to the commercial market, giving medical and pharmaceutical companies around the world access to this well proven and highly accepted technology.
Since 2013 SAXOCON has grown and expanded its portfolio of toxicological risk assessment to the following medical devices, raw materials, pharmaceutical products, food ingredients and biocides. From in-silico screening of drug candidates to risk assessment of extractables and leachables, SAXOCON can help your company get your products quickly tested, approved and ISO-certified.
The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a co-owner of SAXOCON and as such provides access to their outstanding research facilities and collaborates with us via toxicologists from the National Food Institute. This arrangement secures reliability in delivery, continuous product development, and access to the latest research. This arrangement also allows industry access to knowledge previously only available to research institutions and the public sector.
