If you’re not sure whether you need a regulatory or non-regulatory test, please get in touch to talk about your test item. Many clients use our regulatory safety tests to generate data for Material Safety Data Sheets or for regulatory submissions. Our sensitive in vitro tests can also be used to sub-categorise corrosive or irritant chemicals, bringing considerable potential cost savings for labelling, storage and transport.

Non regulatory tests can be used to place raw materials or mixtures in rank order, making it possible to compare formulations in development or to benchmark against competing brands.
