General toxicology

Our team of experienced, highly-educated scientists, with backgrounds in toxicology, molecular biology, chemistry and immunology, understand that the drug development process is no longer a one-size fits all approach. Every development programme is different so we work with you to develop a strategy to ensure that your studies are performed to the highest quality standard and will meet the required international regulatory requirements (EMEA, FDA, OECD, ICH).

Our facility is fully GLP accredited and conducts all studies to GLP standard whether monitored or non-monitored by Quality Assurance. We selected Instem’s Provantis platform for rapid and accurate data capture.

Our internal processes have been developed to ensure maximum efficiency to ensure you receive your high quality report in a competitive timeframe. We also offer fast, reliable, conveniently tailored in-vivo screening studies that address your discover needs.

We offer a range of in-vivo studies from non-monitored to monitored regulatory studies.
