Currently, it is generally accepted that no single in vitro eye irritation test will be able to replace the in vivo Draize eye test
to predict across the entire range of irritation for different chemical classes. Several labs (including MB Research) have been working on strategic combinations of several in vitro and alternative test methods within a (tiered) testing strategy that could replace the Draize Rabbit Eye Test.

The 3T3 NRU PT is an in vitro toxicology test used to identify the phototoxic effect of a test substance induced by the combination of test substance and light and is based on the comparison of the cytotoxic effect of a test substance when tested after the exposure and in the absence of exposure to a non-cytotoxic dose of UVA/vis light.
