In addition to traditional toxicological assessment methods, we are also experts in in-silico risk assessments using QSAR and read-across-based evaluation methods. So, whether you are a raw material manufacturer, a pharmaceutical producer or a medical device manufacturer, we offer services that help you better understand the risks involved with your products and help you get them to market in a safe and timely manner.
SAXOCON was founded in October 2013 when entrepreneur Martin Friis-Mikkelsen and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) joined forces.
In early 2013 the QSAR team from DTU Food was looking for the right entrepreneur to bring their cutting-edge technology and exceptional ability to analyse and interpret QSAR data to market, which for several years had exclusively been used by public authorities across Europe. When Martin and the QSAR team agreed to create SAXOCON, they brought the benefits of this technology and expertise to the commercial market.
Since 2013 SAXOCON has expanded its portfolio of toxicological testing and risk assessment to the medical device, raw materials, pharmaceutical products, food ingredient, chemical, and biocide industries.
SAXOCON is co-owned by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). This partnership gives SAXOCON’s toxicologists access to their outstanding research facilities at the National Food Institute. This arrangement secures reliability in delivery, continuous product development, and access to the latest research. It also connects private industry to knowledge previously only available to research institutions and the public sector.
