SaferWorldbyDesign Webinar: High throughput safety evaluation of chemicals and chemical mixtures

Tuesday 26 May 2020

16-16:45 CEST - (7 am California, 10 am New York, 3 pm London, 4 pm Zurich, 7:30 pm New Delhi, 11 pm Tokyo)

This virtual meeting will include a perspective by Bart van der Burg (Director of Innovation, Biodetection Systems) followed by a discussion session.

Presented by a partner of the recently established EU-ToxRisk Commercial Platform for New Approach Methods (NAMs) in Safety Assessment

Chemicals are indispensable in modern daily life. Correct safety evaluation of chemicals in the context of the chemical mixtures to which we are typically exposed is essential to protect humans and the environment. The use of experimental animals in chemical safety evaluation is under pressure, not only because of ethical reasons, but also because these tests are expensive, time consuming, low in throughput and often give unsatisfactory predictions of human toxicity. Modern mechanistic human cell-based CALUX® assays provide insight in the modes of action of toxicants and can be used as alternative methods to assess safety of chemicals and chemical mixtures as relevant in any realistic exposure condition.  We have automated these methods for the use in high-throughput panels to assess safety of chemicals and chemical mixtures from any thinkable source.  I provide several applications that together can be used in green chemistry and to assure safety in a circular economy.
