Skin sensitization is a complex systemic process and since several years, methods to replace animal tests have been validated and adopted by the OECD in this regard. These tests can be used as part of a weight-of-evidence or integrated using a Defined Approach (DA) to assess Skin Sensitization.
At this two days hands-on training, acCELLerate experts will put emphasis on skin sensitization cell models such as h-clat, the human Cell Line Activation Test which respond to skin sensitizers with the expression of CD54 and CD86 (OECD TG 442E); LuSens and/or KeratinoSens (OECD 442D), cell-based assays representing early key events of the skin sensitization process. The training will start with half day lectures and will be followed by 1.5 days of practical training (Hands on-training) where participants, divided in small groups will get the chance to manipulate and see the critical steps of the methods with the experts. This is a perfect way to quickly approach a method, as well as data analysis and interpretation.
Agenda will be soon available.
This two days hands-on training is hosted by acCELLerate.
Registration fee includes the participant booklet, catering and social dinner.

What will I do during Hands-on trainings?
Each hands-on training is scheduled to last for 2-Days. In these two days, the hands-on trainings encompass 20% Lectures and 80% practical training including case studies. In other words, for about more than a day and a half of the trainings each participant will able to actively interact with the experts in small groups of 3-4 people.
