Alternatives to Animal Testing


To predict toxicity, corrosivity and other safety variables as well as the effectiveness of a new product for humans, traditional testing of chemicals, consumer products, medical devices, and new drugs has involved the use of animals. But today, scientists have developed and validated alternative methods shown to lead to safer and more effective products and drugs for humans than animal testing.


Our scientists validated and made available the below mentioned alternative testing models at Edara Research foundation:


  • Local Lymph Node Assay – LLNA (BrdU- ELISA Method)
  • In vitro Skin Irritation and Ocular Irritation Studies
  • In vitro Dermal Percutaneous Absorptions on Studies
