SenzaGen receives SEK 0.5 million order from world-leading ingredient and raw material supplier

SenzaGen will assess the skin sensitizing hazards of chemicals for a global company specialized in ingredients and raw materials for several different industries and markets. The new order, with a value of approximately SEK 0.5 million, includes testing with both GARD™skin and GARD™potency. The unique ability of the GARD technology to both assess “difficult-to-test” chemicals and determine whether a substance is a weak or strong allergen (potency), was crucial for the agreement. The tests will be carried out at SenzaGen's laboratory in Lund.

With a business operating globally, the customer is headquartered in Europe where innovation, research and development have a central role. The collaboration between the two companies started in the beginning of 2020. After a successful completion of the first tests, the collaboration continues with the signing of the new order.

“I am extremely happy about this collaboration. The new order confirms that our work in our prioritized market segments generates results and that our tests meet the needs of the largest and leading players in the market. Once again, the interest in GARD’s unique ability to test “difficult-to-test” chemicals and their potency is confirmed”, says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.
