In Development

XCELLR8 is currently developing a new human cell based test for acute toxicity, as a scientifically advanced, ethical alternative to the traditional LD50 and related animal methods. This work is being funded by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board) and is a collaborative project with Lush, Inventya and FRAME (Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments).

Please feel free to contact us for further information about the acute toxicity project, or any of the methods listed below, or to enquire about other tests.

SAFETY TESTS UNDER DEVELOPMENT

  • Acute toxicity
  • Phototoxicity
  • Aquatic toxicity

EFFICACY TESTS UNDER DEVELOPMENT
