SenzaGen receives GLP approval

SenzaGen, which develops animal-free in vitro safety tests, has received the important GLP approval from Swedac for its laboratory and the use of its test platform GARD™. The internal work began in 2019 and today, May 27, the Company received the GLP approval. This is a substantial regulatory milestone since the GLP status gives SenzaGen access to customers seeking to file their products with regulators such as the Swedish Medical Products Agency or the FDA.

GLP stands for Good Laboratory Practice and is a quality system of requirements and principles to assure the quality of non-clinical safety studies. What constitutes GLP is defined by the OECD for use as a global standard requirement to ensure high-quality and reliable results for product filings and regulatory approval. Swedac, the Swedish national accreditation body, is the authority that has determined that SenzaGen’s lab meets the GLP requirements.

The approval affirms that SenzaGen’s laboratory operations have ensured that studies subject to GLP requirements can be performed with the quality specified by regulators when the study is used as documentation for regulatory purposes.

“The GLP approval is a regulatory milestone and an important part of SenzaGen’s continuing commercialization. This gives us access to a significantly broader group of customers because we can meet both the customer’s internal quality requirements and the regulatory requirements for study data used in product filings. The approval is also positive for the OECD’s ongoing approval process for GARD since Swedac’s decision shows that the method can be used in a lab subject to regulatory monitoring,” says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.

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.

SenzaGen and the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) collaborate to develop next-generation test for photosensitization

SenzaGen has entered into collaboration with the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM). The collaboration means that SenzaGen, with the support of a RIFM grant, will test several substances for RIFM to assess whether some fragrance materials could cause skin allergies when exposed to sunlight, so-called photosensitization. The cooperation agreement runs through 2021.

RIFM is an international scientific organization working to promote the safe use of fragrance ingredients in consumer products. Part of RIFM’s business is promoting the development of new and innovative tests for safety and sensitivity and today there are few reliable alternatives to animal testing. SenzaGen and RIFM have entered a collaboration to further develop and extend the applicability of GARD™skin to include photosensitization. GARDskin is SenzaGen’s animal-free assay for assessing substances for potential allergic reactions on skin. The technology adaptation is in line with SenzaGen’s strategy to meet more customer needs by optimizing and expanding its product offering.

“RIFM is a world-leading organization for research on fragrances and we are very proud of their confidence in us. The collaboration with RIFM provides a stimulating exchange of knowledge and an opportunity for us to further develop and test GARDskin in an application to assess fragrances for potential skin sensitization when exposed to sunlight. The need for measuring photosensitization risk is significant for, for example, product development companies in the cosmetics and chemicals industry, which are two of our target industries,” says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.

The two organizations look forward to jointly contributing to a sustainable and ethical development of the testing market.

“Identifying the photosensitization risk of fragrance ingredients with high accuracy is a need that fragrance stakeholders have long expressed. We support SenzaGen’s investment in modern technologies and animal-alternative test methods, with the goal that RIFM will be able to use new approach methodologies without compromising scientific quality,” says RIFM’s Gretchen Ritacco, Principal Scientist, Phototoxicology.

About RIFM
Established in 1966, the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) generates, analyzes, evaluates, and distributes data to provide a scientific basis for the safe use of fragrances. RIFM has compiled the most comprehensive, worldwide source of toxicology data, literature, and general information on fragrance and flavor raw materials. RIFM’s fragrance ingredient safety assessment program draws from its comprehensive database of over 70,000 references and more than 135,000 human health and environmental studies.

RIFM assesses the safety of fragrance ingredients by the most current, internationally accepted guidelines—and has done so since its founding. The Expert Panel for Fragrance Safety, an independent, international team of researchers and academics with no ties to the fragrance industry, reviews all of RIFM’s work before RIFM submits it for peer-reviewed publication in a reputable scientific journal. RIFM makes all of its published, peer-reviewed work—current and historical—available for free at fragrancematerialsafetyresource.elsevier.com.

SenzaGen and XCellR8 expand their collaboration to offer GARD[®]skin Animal Product-Free

SenzaGen, a Swedish developer of animal-free in vitro tests for sensitization and the British contract testing laboratory, XCellR8, have deepened and expanded their collaboration by signing an exclusive global licensing agreement. The new agreement covers the performance, marketing and sales of SenzaGen's new, vegan skin sensitization test, GARD[®]skin Animal Product-Free.

XCellR8 is an established in vitro contract testing laboratory in Europe engaged in work to replace animal testing and related animal components with alternative methods, especially in the cosmetics industry. Today, XCellR8 works with several well-known cosmetics companies such as The Body Shop, Lush, and their suppliers. SenzaGen and XCellR8 have been in partnership since 2016 through a distribution agreement. Thanks to this new enhanced license agreement, XCellR8 will market and sell GARD®skin Animal Product-Free and perform tests at its laboratory in Daresbury, UK.

“We are happy to deepen our collaboration with Dr. Carol Treasure and her team at XCellR8. By focusing on the use of the latest technology and new research results, they are contributing to the movement towards a more ethical and sustainable testing industry. Our collaboration has resulted in further development of an existing test, adding an offering to our portfolio, which is in line with our strategy and mission to offer the best animal-free test methods,” says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.

GARD®skin Animal Product-Free is a further development of SenzaGen’s existing skin sensitization test, GARD®skin, and meets consumers’ growing demand for an animal-free supply chain. By replacing animal serum, traditionally used as a nutrient solution in cell culture, with human serum, this new test is totally free of animal components. GARD®skin Animal Product-Free has the same high accuracy and performance as the other tests available in SenzaGen’s portfolio.

“Together with our clients, we are passionate about the vision of creating a more ethical testing industry, without animal testing and animal components. Through this close collaboration with SenzaGen, XCellR8 has the exclusive opportunity to offer this accurate and innovative GARD test, free of animal components, for skin sensitization. In the long term, this means safer and better products for all of us,” says Carol Treasure, founder and CEO of XCellR8.

SenzaGen receives order of SEK 0.6 million from new global customer

SenzaGen will assess the sensitizing hazards of chemicals for a new global customer with in-house product development. The assignment includes SenzaGen's tests to assess whether chemical substances can cause allergic reactions in skin (GARD[™]skin) or in the respiratory tract (GARD[™]air) with a value of approximately SEK 0.6 million. The tests will be carried out at SenzaGen's laboratory in Lund.

The customer has its headquarters in Europe where research and development have a central role. With the combination of GARD tests, the customer can for the first time identify substances with various allergy-causing effects during product development, which contributes to cost savings for the company and safer products to the society.

“This assignment is important for several reasons. We now begin to see the results of our sales efforts and from the new commercial organization that we started to build during the fall. The fact that the customer wants to test chemicals for both skin and respiratory allergies makes this an important reference order,” says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.

SenzaGen’s test platform GARD targets companies looking to optimize their in vitro testing strategy; increasing the accuracy of their test results while avoiding animal testing. Through its precision and reliability, GARD improves the quality of customers’ decision-making and contributes to increased product safety in people’s everyday lives while reducing the number of animal experiments. SenzaGen is the only company that can offer a non-animal, so called in vitro test, for identification of chemical respiratory allergens.

About GARD
GARD™ consists of a group of tests for analyzing chemicals’ ability to start an allergic reaction in humans. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence. By analyzing hundreds of markers, GARD™ generates large amounts of data and delivers results with over 90 percent accuracy. This can be compared to today’s standard method – tests on animals – which only achieves 70-75 percent accuracy. The product portfolio consists of tests for skin and respiratory allergy: GARD™skin, GARD™air, GARD™potency and GARD™skin Medical Device.
