Webinar: In Vitro Skin Corrosion Testing

We are pleased to announce that Founder and CEO of vegan testing lab XCellR8, Dr Carol Treasure, will be presenting a new CHCS webinar on 21 January 2020.

XCellR8 is the only lab globally to have eliminated animal components from all of their safety tests, and in this interactive session, Carol will focus on their regulatory in vitro skin corrosion test.

Attendees will learn how the test works, how it can be used within your animal-free testing strategy and updates on recent regulatory changes around the transport of hazardous substances.

CHCS members can register now, free-of-charge and we'll be sending out more information soon.
