As Regulators begin to initiate laws and regulations that require the reduction of using live animals for safety studies, more and more companies are looking for valid substitutes that are economical and thorough.
Since the late 1980s, MB Research has been a pioneer in the used and development of in vitro & alternative test methods, reducing the use of live animals in toxicological research.
What are the 3 Rs?
The principle of the 3Rs was first mentioned by William Russell and Rex Burch in 1959. In their book “The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique”, they classified humane techniques under the headings Refinement, Reduction, and Replacement, commonly known now as the 3Rs.
MB Research Laboratories prides itself on pursuing in vitro and alternative toxicological methods that Reduce, Refine and Replace the use of animals in laboratory research and has worked with many leaders in this field to advance the development, validation and regulatory acceptance of in vitro and alternative tests with a goal on replacing laboratory animals in toxicological research.
The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) is a United States federal law that outlines the basic U.S. pesticide regulation to protect applicators, consumers, and the environment. FIFRA is administered and regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the appropriate state environmental agencies.
