Biological Safety and Function

Biological Safety and Function

Within BioSafe we offer everything from biological analysis related to human health to providing solid advice regarding or taking responsibility for the biological evaluation of a product. We perform cell- and tissue-based, microbiological and animal based experiments, according to standards or customized, in order to evaluate the function or safety of a product.

Offer

We use cell and tissue-based systems, microbiological systems and animal models, and perform the studies in well-equipped and quality-assured laboratories, e.g.: 

  • Cytotoxicity and skin irritation tests performed according to GLP 

  • Wound healing models in vitro and in vivo 

  • Cell adhesion and cellular uptake tests 

  • Gene expression studies 

  • Analysis of inflammatory markers 

  • Evaluation of biocompatibility according to ISO 10993 

  • Skin absorption tests 

  • Validation of in vitro test methods 

  • Infection control studies in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo 

  • Cancer inhibition screening assays in vitro 

 

We have good knowledge regarding regulatory requirements and are happy to give advice regarding the planning and scope of a biological evaluation, interpretation of results and advice for registration of products.
