Animal welfare

The Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Industrial Organic Chemistry, Branch Pszczyna is included in the national register of institutions entitled to conduct experiments on animals. Our number in the register is 003. The register is available on the web page of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

It is relevant to mention that all experiments performed on vertebrates require obtaining the approval of the Local Ethical Committee for Animal Experimentation which the Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Industrial Organic Chemistry applies for when the need arises, i.e. every time when it is ordered to conduct such studies.
All tests on vertebrates are conducted by experienced and highly-qualified specialists who possess individual permissions to perform experiments on animals.

Our studies comply with the principles of the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction, Refinement). As a responsible company, we are committed to high ethical and scientific standards of animal welfare.

We have been granted full accreditation by the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC International), and fulfil the highest worldwide standards for the use of laboratory animals.
