SenzaGen is presenting at a hosted session at Society of Toxicology 55th Annual Meeting in New Orleans March 15, 2016

SenzaGen Senior Scientist, Dr. Henrik Johansson will give a presentation at an
exhibitor hosted
session at the Society of Toxicology 55
Annual Meeting in New Orleans, 15
of March.

The meeting promises more than 150 scientific sessions, approximately 350 ToxExpo exhibitors offering you the latest information on services and technology, thousands of abstract presentations, continuing education courses, awards presentations, receptions, career guidance and support, and more.

The topic for Dr. Johansson’s presentation,
Genomics—The Future of Sensitization Testing and Safety Assessment

In vitro testing in human cellines using genomic technology is the future in safety testing of chemicals and proteins. SenzaGen is presenting their use of genomics for sensitization testing with GARD assays for skin and respiratory sensitization. Using +200 biomarkers enables better predictions, including potency information.

This session is an Exhibitor-Hosted Session. Although not an official part of the SOT Annual Meeting scientific program, its presentation is permitted by the Society.

The presentation will cover

  • Accurate and convenient safety assessment of chemical sensitizers using GARD, an in vitro assay based on genomic biomarker signatures
  • How genomic readouts can help facilitate simple models that effectively monitors a complex reality
  • Versatile test systems allowing for a broad applicability domain

Attendees are welcomed from researcher community, industry, manufacturers, regulatory agencies, consultants, CROs and every one interested in safety testing of chemical compounds.
