The JRC’s EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) has an extensive experimental facility used for the development, validation and standardisation of in vitro methods.
Many cosmetics or medicines are tested on animals. In-vitro methods or computer-based models can reduce or even replace animal experiments in laboratories.
