Sichuan Primed Shines Bio-tech Co., Ltd., headquartered in Chengdu, China, is a Nonhuman Primate CRO with extensive research experiences of 12 years (2005-2017). Primed Shines provides highest service to our clients in our 400,000 ft2 fully AAALAC accredited facilities.

Primed Shines currently has over 3000 rhesus macaques, on which exists longitudinal metabolic data from 7 years of semiannual screenings. A subset of 800 of these monkeys comprises Primed Shines’ dysmetabolic colony, which are at all stages of metabolic disease from obesity to diabetes.

Primed Shines has built a fully-integrated monkey imaging center and translational research platform for novel drug discovery. In total, 11 different imaging modalities are available for monkey studies. Primed Shines has access to 3.0T MRIs for cardiac and fibrosis imaging, dual-energy CT and Doppler ultrasound for cardiac and liver imaging studies. Other platforms available include dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and eye imaging platform includes fundus camera, OCT and ERG. Primed Shines has built an imaging database for over 400 dysmetabolic monkeys.

Key Focused Disease Areas/Diabetic Complications

Cardiovascular diseases /Diabetic cardiomyopathy / Diastolic dysfunction
