Sami Labs Ltd, Sabinsa's manufacturing and research arm in India , is pleased to announce that it will now represent InVitro International, California in the Indian subcontinent. This development provides in house capability to perform Alternatives to Animal testing.

InVitro International headquartered in Irvine , CA is a provider of non-animal testing methods and develops & commercializes test kits and laboratory services. Sami Labs will use testing technologies, which are designed to produce data for corrosivity, or ocular/dermal irritation, which correlate with animal and human test results.

The Irritection Assay System is a standardized, quantitative invitro test method that can be employed to detect, rank, and predict the ocular and/or dermal irritation potential of cosmetics, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and chemical raw materials.

Corrositex is an in vitro test that determines chemical corrosivity and permits assignment of Packing Group classification for Class 8 corrosives. This test replaces the rabbit test of dermal corrosivity by providing a reliable means of mimicking this test.

These test methodologies save both time and money. For example Irritection data may be obtained in as little as 5 hours, versus the standard 2-3 weeks required for in vivo studies.

With this partnership, Sami Labs and Sabinsa Corporation not only increase our technological capabilities, but also fulfill our corporate and social responsibility by introducing non-animal testing in India .
