Exclusive study “Use of NGS to replace animal tests for the viral safety of biologics”

Industry stakeholders need rapid and robust testing strategies to ensure their products and patients’ safety. Doing so they are seeking long-term strategies around sustainability and animal welfare. Choosing NGS-based biosafety services will help them comply with the principles of the 3R: refine, replace, and reduce animal testing.

In those dedicated events, our experts will present the results of the first biosafety study.

This 30-month long unprecedented study was jointly conducted by PathoQuest and Charles River and provides extended arguments for the adoption of NGS-based testing as a prime substitutive method to animal testing.
