EpiDerm™ Skin corrosion test (OECD TG 431)


Skin corrosion means irreversible damage (loss of cell viability) of the skin following the application of a test substance for up to four hours. EpiDermTM. Skin corrosion test is performed using human cell based three-dimensional highly differentiated keratinocyte cultures (EpiDermTM) in compliance with OECD TG 431. The potential of chemical to induce skin corrosion is an important consideration in establishing procedures for the safe handling, packing and transport of chemicals.


-Evaluation of skin corrosion potential of chemicals (drugs, cosmetics,
industrial chemicals, biocides) and mixtures of chemicals

-Both GLP and non–GLP testing service available!
