Every day people are exposed to chemicals from a variety of sources such as food products, cosmetics, clothing, medical devices, and medicines. EU regulations set requirements for testing chemicals for their potential to cause harm, be it through DNA damage, cancer, hormonal disruption or some other way.
Often the testing for the harmful effects of a chemical is conducted through testing on animals. While effective, animal testing suffers from grave ethical concerns around the treatment of animals. On 29 September this year, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) implemented new measures to minimise the use of animal testing in the development of medicines.
Achieving the goal of reduced animal testing requires the use of sophisticated computer modelling and the expertise to interpret the results. SAXOCON specialises in the use of Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) modelling and can therefore help you to understand the potential danger of the chemicals used in your products without animal testing.
So, get compliant with EU regulations and minimise the use of animal testing with SAXOCON’s QSAR specialists.
