The Company was founded in 1985, to develop and market reliable and cost-effective In vitro laboratory tests for evaluating substances that are potentially toxic or irritating to humans and the environment. The company pioneered the development of these faster, simpler non-animal testing methodologies to partially or fully replace the practice of using animals as test subjects for these same purposes. Beside the humane aspects of reducing the use of animals for irritation and toxicity testing purposes, using alternative testing methods presents a compelling business and financial benefit to organizations using in vitro methods. They positively impact both product development time and cost.
In 1992, the US Department of Transportation approved InVitro International’s Corrositex® test for determining GHS/UN Packing Group classifications required for the storage and transport of corrosive substances. Today InVitro International is the longest continually operating in vitro testing Technology Company in the world and Corrositex® is the leading globally accepted full replacement non animal test method for skin corrosivity. It is used to insure environmental and human safety by manufacturers of potentially hazardous chemical formulations around the globe.
