Overcoming the need to reference animal test data:
Cutest and XCellR8 win significant Innovate UK grant to improve human safety predictions for consumer products
A collaborative project between non-animal testing laboratory, XCellR8, and dermatological testing organisation, Cutest, has been launched, thanks to a substantial grant by Innovate UK.
The aim of the project is to take the first steps to establishing reliable correlations between in vitro and in vivo predicative irritation testing, to eliminate the need to refer to historical and often unreliable animal test data. This project is an exciting opportunity to develop innovative methods to provide enhanced consumer protection through being able to predict potential irritancy from topically applied ingredients and products.
