Altertox won the PEPPER Call with partners from Université de Paris and Benaki Phytopathological Institute. PEPPER is the newly established Public-PrivatE Platform for the Pre-Validation of Endocrine disRuptors characterization methods located in France.
Company fitness check strategy on alternatives to animal testing by Altertox for Nagi Bioscience test method portfolio.
The development and regulatory acceptance of new alternative test methods to the traditional animal-based ones is a relatively long and complex process.
The objective of the collaboration between Altertox and Nagi Bioscience is to anticipate some of the common bottlenecks linked with the validation itself (e.g. applicability domain, regulatory purposes, FRAND) and, as such, guide and speed up the process.
Following regulatory obligation and public influence, New Approach Methods (NAMs) in toxicology are developed in many laboratories.
With the French platform PEPPER, Altertox has participated in Test Readiness Criteria and evaluation of several methods developed to assess endocrine disruptors. Altertox is also partner in the beginning steps of pre-validation of some of these methods.
Furthermore, Altertox, drawing upon its expertise in 3Rs and in toxicology, has also developed a fitness check strategy to help lab developers to evaluate their methods (F/RAND, maturity of the methods, QA evaluation, strategy and business development).
