Accelera is pleased to inform that its test facility has been selected for inclusion within the European Union Network of Laboratories for the Validation of Alternative Methods (EU-NETVAL), established by the EU Commission in context of Directive 2010/63 for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.
EU-NETVAL's mission is to provide support for EURL ECVAM validation studies that serve to assess the reliability and relevance of alternative methods that have a potential to replace, reduce or refine (3Rs) the use of animals for scientific purposes.
General information on EU-NETVAL is available on their website at:
The selection was based on specific technical skills, competence, and compliance to the existing guidance on Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
The appointment of Accelera Srl within EU-NETVAL recognizes both the scientific excellence of its Team, and its proactivity in the identification and development of new alternative methods aimed at the translation into regulatory testing of the 3Rs concept, and finally contributing to overall animal welfare principles.
