We are passionately committed to the full replacement of animal-based product testing. We use human cell culture based methods and we do not use any animal-derived components in our laboratory. Where needed, we re-work existing published methods to eradicate any animal components and replace them with fully human or synthetic alternatives. We validate the revised methods in-house and work to ensure that our modifications are compliant with regulatory requirements.
We also carry out research to develop new non-animal safety tests. We currently have a grant from Innovate UK (Technology Strategy Board) to develop a human cell based replacement for the LD50 acute toxicity test, in partnership with Lush and FRAME (Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments).
XCellR8 never has, and never will, perform any animal product testing. We are an independent, privately owned company and not associated with any organisations that test on animals.
