Tenth World Congress on Alternative and Animal Use in the Life Sciences

Tenth World Congress on Alternative and Animal Use in the Life Sciences

Sunday 20th – Thursday 24th August 2017, Washington State Convention Centre, Seattle, Washington, USA

 Alcyomics will be attending the Tenth World Congress on Alternative and Animal use in the Life Sciences. The theme of this year’s conference is “The Three R’s in Action” and is promised to be a cutting edge scientific meeting, focused on the latest cutting edge technologies that aim for the reduction and replacement of animals, which is where our portfolio of novel assays come in!

Alcyomics will be attending the meeting to introduce our range of human in vitro Skimune® assays which are completely free of animal components. In our tests we use skin and blood from healthy human volunteers. At the meeting we will be addressing the benefits Alcyomics services offer the Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Cosmetic industries.

Louis Bibby, one of our young researchers will be presenting a poster titled: ‘Predicting adverse immune reactions to biopharmaceuticals using the Skimune® technology, a platform of novel in vitro skin explant tests’.   The poster will be presented within the Innovative Models for Safety and Efficacy stream; It will show how we can use the Skimune®Mab assay for preclinical prediction of  adverse reactions to biological drugs using our human in vitro tests

We will also be giving an oral presentation on Thursday (24th August) at 11:30 titled: An in vitro human skin test for assessing allergy and sensitization. This will be presented in the New Advances in Models for Skin stream, where we will discuss our existing portfolio of skin assays and introduce exciting new developments we’ve made with our new Skimune® 3D model.

If you would like to discuss our assays in more detail Louis Bibby would be happy to arrange 1:1 meetings during his visit in Seattle. Please contact him on louis.bibby@alcyomics.com
