Organisations related to in vitro testing

Please find below useful links within the in vitro community activities relevant to the area of advanced in vitro exposure systems for inhalation and skin exposure.

  • ACEnano
    The scope of ACEnano-project is to introduce confidence, adaptability and clarity into nanomaterial risk assessment by developing a widely implementable and robust tiered approach to nanomaterials physicochemical characterisation. VITROCELL is partner in this EU-project funded under Horizon 2020.
    Website dedicated to advancing non-animal methods of toxicity testing through online discussion and information exchange.
    The global clearinghouse fo information on alternatives to animal testing
  • CAAT
    Johns Hopkins University Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing
    Housed at the University of Konstanz, coordinates transatlantic activities to promote education in humane science and will participate in and/or coordinate publicly and privately funded projects
  • CleanAir
    CleanAir network competencies and promote technologies to improve air quality.
  • C3-Projekt
    Within carbon concrete composite project the innovative construction material carbon-concrete is being investigated under various considerations. VITROCELL® is part of group “health, occupational safety and environment” to investigate influence towards health of carbon concrete. VITROCELL® develops an Abrasive Dust Generator and an Automated Exposure Station with integrated dosimetry tools for the project.

  • IIVS
    The Institute for In Vitro Sciences, Inc. is a non-profit research and testing laboratory dedicated to the advancement of in vitro (non-animal) methods worldwide
  • ITC & ITG
    At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) the Institute for Technical Chemistry (ITC) and the Institute of Toxicology and Genetics (ITG) are collaborating together to investigate the impact of aerosols (combustion derived aerosols, nanoparticles) to cell cultures exposed at the air-liquid interface.
    In Vitro Testing Industrial Platform
  • NanoMILE Project
    VITROCELL® is partner of this prestigious EU funded project. Engineered nanomaterial  mechanisms of interactions with living systems and the environment: a universal framework for safe nanotechnology
  • Nano Safety Cluster
    The Cluster is an initiative of the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) to maximize collaboration, outcome and impact of projects within the cluster.
  • ProCycle
    ProCycle is analyzing and evaluating the toxicological potential of aerosols derived from recycling process of nanocomposites. The toxicological evaluation is performed at air liquid interface with special designed Automated Exposure Station for the needs within this project.
  • SmartNanoTox
    Nanomaterials, with their own particle properties and activities, are examined in scope of the European Union financed SmartNanoTox project. In-depth research on the effect of nanoparticles in aerosols is made possible by modern and advanced approaches – e.g. VITROCELL® manufactured devices. SmartNanoTox Video
