The BfR and Services & Consultation on Alternative Methods (SeCAM) are jointly presenting an international workshop on the HET-CAM assay on the 29th and 30th of October 2012 in Berlin, co-sponsored by the BfR and the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA). The aim of this workshop is to make recommendations on HET-CAM protocol variations including prediction models used for:
a) identification of chemicals not requiring classification for eye irritation in a bottom-up approach
b) identification of chemicals inducing serious eye damage in a top-down approach
c) screening, testing and / or safety assessment
The workshop is open to the public; however, registration is limited to 40 participants. Click on the document above to view the full program or the URL above to be directed to the workshop’s website.
