In vitro safety testing of chemicals, cosmetics and biotech industrial products.
Skin corrosiveness testing is conducted to ensure that chemicals and products are properly labeled to alert consumers and workers to take precautions to prevent chemical burns to the skin and eyes. Dermal Corrosion assay is performed using in vitro model Corrositex developed by In Vitro International.
Corrositex is an in-vitro test that determines chemical corrosivity and permits assignment of Packing Group classification for Class 8 corrosives. This test replaces the rabbit test of dermal corrosivity by providing a reliable means of mimicking this test. The proprietary core technology of the Corrositex test is based upon a bio-membrane and chemical detection system, which becomes colored when exposed to potentially corrosive substances.
ADVANTAGES OF IN VITRO DERMAL CORROSION TESTING
Time Savings: Unlike animal testing that can take 2 to 4 weeks, Corrositex testing can provide a Packing Group determination in as little as 3 minutes and no longer than 4 hours.
Cost Savings: In a recent evaluation, one customer saved up to $50,000 annually, in shipping costs, for a single compound when using the Corrositex test to define the Packing Group instead of relying on pH. In addition to the reduction in shipping charges, additional cost savings are found in the areas of workplace safety and MSDS development.

Dr Jayaraman D. Lead Scientist, leading CRO company
I have been working with a team from KRISHGEN on an assay development and customization before giving us. The project was complicated and needed technical expertise in immunology. I was very pleased with their technical competence and also mastering immunology and delivering a tough project to us on time. Their rigor, punctuality and expertise have been a recipe for the high standards, I would expect for such project from them. Kudos, Krishgen Team!!!
Mr Ramesh Sravanan, VP-Supply Chain
The expertise and command on the logistics chain including the regulatory
guidelines from Krishgen is something we admire. As they often indicate, let us
do the supplies, and let your team focus on science … is really something the
company works on. Delivering consistently, with less than 1% error or delay
consistently is the key to their success.
Dr Keith Stevens, visiting Scientist, Norfolk University, UK
To have a company understand science and work with them, is a pleasure. Krishgen
not only sells but understands what it sells in terms of the complex cutting
Mellisa Karlowski, Lead Researcher, east coast US CRO
The company is good on understanding its customers, is transparent and
speaks science. This makes it easier for us to work with them.
