Identify workplace hazards by testing for skin and respiratory sensitizers
Occupational allergic dermatitis and asthma are common workplace diseases. By using the in vitro GARD™ assays to test for skin and respiratory sensitizers in combination, it is possible to identify allergens in the work environment and take preventive action.
For professionals working in the cosmetic, chemical or pharmaceutical industries it is important that the substances they handle are tested for sensitizers. Workers at risk of potentially harmful exposures include, but are not limited to, those working in the following industries and sectors: agriculture, manufacturing, cosmetology, health care, cleaning, painting, mechanics, printing/lithography, and construction.
High information, high accuracy
SenzaGen is at the forefront of Genomics and Machine Learning with its new in vitro assays as alternatives to animal testing. Customers have already experienced great gains with the GARD™ technology platform using it for prediction of chemical sensitizers.
The GARD tests are developed by combining genomic data from a relevant human cell type with machine learning to create a prediction model for identification of chemical sensitizers. This holistic high information approach provides robust predictions with high accuracies.
