In response to a growing interest in alternative testing methods, SenzaGen signs a license agreement with MB Research Labs to expand the use of its animal-free testing platform.

The contract research organization (CRO) MB Research Labs provides good laboratory (GLP) in vitro​ toxicological testing in the US.

SenzaGen’s agreement with the contract research organization (CRO) gives MB Research Labs the right to globally market and sell SenzaGen’s animal-free GARD test platform, which includes a set of allergy tests that are performed in vitro​ in combination with artificial intelligence (AI).

SenzaGen CEO Anki Malmborg Hager said the agreement “also further strengthens SenzaGen’s presence in the US market.”

“There is a keen interest in animal-free and alternative test methods with introductions in legislation of bans on animal testing for cosmetic and other products,” ​Malmborg told us.

According to the company, the US currently accounts for more than one-third of the global market for cell-based in vitro​ testing.

While California is the first state to pass legislation aimed at reducing animal testing, Malmborg said this market is expected to grow as more states face similar bans.
