New in vitro study available

Limiting or completely excluding the usage of laboratory animals is the trend that has been going on for several years in R&D around UE. It has become also the driving force for changes in research work carried out in our Institute. Our scientists perform research work that allows us to expand the scope of the studies we offer using alternative (in vitro) methods. Therefore we are excited to announce that we extend our offer with a new study. It is now possible to perform a test in accordance with OECD Guideline No. 492B at The Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Industrial Organic Chemistry Branch in Pszczyna. This method enables self-identification of chemicals (substances and mixtures) not requiring classification (no category), requiring classification for eye irritation (Cat. 2) and requiring classification for serious eye damage (Cat. 1) according to the Globally Harmonized System Classification and Labeling (GHS).

This study should be field of interest for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, for which it may be necessary in the process of registration of a new product.

The Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Industrial Organic Chemistry Branch in Pszczyna continues to focus its research work on the development of in vitro studies. These are assumed to become the basic tool for the classification of chemical substances in the future.
