ADDRESSING IN VITRO EYE IRRITATION WITH THE SKINETHIC HCE : RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND LIVE LAB SESSION

This webinar will present the characterization of this model, its specificities and the importance of quality control in its manufacturing process to deliver a model with high performance every week.

Its use in the framework of the OECD guidance Document on Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment (IATA) for Serious Eye Damage and Eye Irritation for regulatory toxicology will be presented as well as the new perspectives opened by the ongoing validation of the Time to toxicity method to identify mild irritants (category 3).
