INNOVATIVE METHODS FOR TOXICITY TESTING

Neomodels offers a non-mammalian, in vivo carcinogenic assay, to bridge the gap between in vitro /cellular assays and mammalian models in carcinogenicity screenings. It has the potential to detect non-genotoxic carcinogens, which is advantageous to current tests that have a weak sensitivity and poor reliability towards these compounds.

Special attention is also given to developmental toxicity, as stem cells are promising tools in the evaluation of potential toxic effects.
