By the year 2022, the in vitro toxicology testing market is predicted to be worth approximately $8.74 billion. This represents a CAGR of 6.6%, starting from an industry that was worth $6.34 billion in 2017.
In vitro toxicology testing is experiencing this accelerated growth in part because of rising opposition to animal testing. In previous business generations, animal testing was considered the most cost-effective way to test for toxins in beauty products and other types of products. Today, this is Blog
The Invitro Irritection® Assay System measures a person’s eye sensitivity and irritation to chemicals or substances they may have been exposed to. Unlike most other types of testing, this system is in vitro, meaning it is done without animal testing. The results of this standardized test can be set up as a yes/no or pass/fail objective or as a quantitative measure. It works by using changes of relevant macromolecules to predict the ocular irritancy.

Animal testing was once the most widely used tool to evaluate product safety. It’s still a common practice in cosmetic testing, depending on which markets the product is being sold in. For instance, China insists that all cosmetic products are tested on animals to meet regulatory requirements for sale in their country. Animals are still widely used for testing in medical research, as well.
There are, however, other models of testing that have proven to be extremely accurate. For Blog, Uncategorized
Development for new topical products involves a great deal of risk assessment and safety testing. Each ingredient must be carefully scrutinized to ensure that it is safe and has a low risk of causing irritation. Before the product can be marketed, it must undergo rigorous evaluations. Traditionally, this was done via animal testing. While this method is mostly effective, there are testing alternatives that are more affordable, more accurate, and reach across a broader spectrum of variables and associated factors.Blog
In March of 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a document outlining a multiyear plan for identifying alternative testing methods that will reduce the use of animal testing. The EPA’s strategy is to reduce and eventually eliminate chemical testing on all vertebrate animal species, which necessarily includes mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians alike.
