In vitro & in vivo Toxicology

Performed in-house in a quality controlled way

The Pharmacelsus service portfolio on in vitro and in vivo toxicology service offers you a complete workflow. De-risk either your early stage drug discovery or late stage development programs with us. In vitro toxicology assays are performed in-house in a quality controlled way. We offer in vivo non-GLP toxicology studies in-house with rodents, e.g. for the early evaluation of the toxicological potential of drug candidates during development. Thereby, we support all studies with the required bioanalytical analysis. Furthermore, GLP bioanalysis of samples from all animal species can be performed.
