IIVS is highly regarded within the chemical, cosmetics and personal care industries both as a leader and contributor. Our active participation across government, animal welfare communities and the general public enables the IIVS scientists to lend the weight of their practical experience and scientific knowledge to industry’s leadership and decision makers.
We provide educational programs and laboratory resources for companies who want to establish or fine tune their own in-house in vitro alternative testing programs. Our services extend from the initiation of new programs all the way through to validation of these methods for use in their own laboratories. IIVS also operates as a reference laboratory for the external validation of new or revised methods put forward by industrial consortia. For more detail on our validation activities, please visit our Validation Studies page.
The Institute’s reputation with regulatory agencies and government authorities worldwide provides invaluable support to industrial groups seeking regulatory acceptance. We participate actively in agency review meetings on in vitro methods, providing scientific support to initiatives from industry. By providing a balanced and unbiased viewpoint, IIVS is able to lend credibility and strength to programs pushing for regulatory acceptance of alternative methods.
IIVS frequently partners with industrial leaders and customers to give joint presentations at meetings and workshops. Please view our calendar of events to see which meetings we will be attending.
