ToxTracker applied for testing Cobalt nanoparticles

In collaboration with scientists at the Karolinska institute and KTH  in Sweden, we recently published a paper about application of ToxTracker for genotoxicity testing of Cobalt nanoparticles. There is a growing demand for fast and reliable assays to identify nanoparticle-induced toxicity and underlying mechanisms. In the...

Poster together with P&G presented at the SOT 2017: use of multiparametric mode of action approaches for genetic toxicity assessment

This poster describes the investigation of several different predictive, animal-free genetic toxicology methodologies with varying degrees of complexity. The predictive capacity of these methods was compared by testing 22 chemicals that represent a mix of DNA reactive chemicals, chemicals with known, mixed or unknown modes...

ToxTracker, the future for genotoxicity screening of nanoparticles

Many of the traditional genotoxicity test methods [e.g. unscheduled DNA synthesis assay, bacterial reverse mutation (Ames) test, etc.,] for determining the DNA damaging potential of chemical and biological compounds are not suitable for the evaluation of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), due to a variety of methodological...
