In vitro Core

In vivo toxicity testing is animal, time and cost intensive. In vitro approaches are needed for more rapid screening
of compounds and the eventual replacement of whole animal testing.

Core capabilities include assessments of:

  • Genotoxicity: Ames, comet, micronucleus assays
  • Cytotoxicity with various relevant animal and human cell lines
  • Mechanism of action determinations
  • Unique exposures for cell lines and tissue models
