Webinar: How GLPs Enhance the Quality of Regulated and Non-Regulated Toxicology

October 18, 2016
This one-hour webinar, led by IIVS Director of Quality and Compliance, introduces some of the concepts of Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) designed to promote study and data integrity within an in vitro toxicology framework. Applying these concepts within your own laboratory should aid in production of robust, repeatable studies. View Slides...

Trans-Epithelial Permeability/Fluorescein Leakage (OECD 460)

August 24, 2016
The Trans-Epithelial Permeability (TEP) Assay, is a cell-based assay used to evaluate the potential ocular irritancy of test chemicals by measuring the permeability of sodium fluorescein (or fluorescein leakage) through a confluent monolayer of Madin-Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) cells. The MDCK cell line is used since it forms tight junctions in a confluent monolayer similar to those formed in the outermost corneal and conjunctival epithelial layers. The disruption of the tight junctions by chemicals is one of the early events typical...
