AAL can analyze the dermal corrosion potential of any chemical or formulation by using the same replica skin tissue used in our skin irritation testing. AAL uses the in vitro same test method approved by both U.S. and European regulators to assess dermal corrosiveness. If in vitro testing show skin corrosion potential, no further in vivo (animal) testing is needed. Since tissues used in this test take 3 weeks to grow customers must contact AAL to schedule their testing.
Test substances are topically applied to reconstructed human epidermis tissue that has been carefully grown and prepared. Corrosiveness is assessed using an MTT ET-50 Tissue Viability Assay for exposures of 3 minutes and 60 minutes.
