SenzaGen presents and hosts a panel discussion at the SOT Annual Meeting & ToxExpo 2024

SenzaGen, which develops and sells non-animal chemical tests based on genomics and machine learning, announces today that the company will hold presentations and organize a round-table discussion at the SOT Annual Meeting & ToxExpo, the world's largest conference in toxicology, taking place in Salt Lake City, USA, from March 10 to 14, 2024.

The conference is organized by the American organization The Society of Toxicology and is expected to gather around 5,000 scientists and toxicologists from all over the world.

During the event, SenzaGen's team and collaborative partners will present the GARD® test platform for in vitro skin sensitization, emphasizing its broad applicability, relevance for medical devices, and ability to provide quantitative information about safe dose levels.

Moreover, SenzaGen will facilitate a panel discussion on the evolving trends in skin sensitization and in vitro testing. The expert panel will include representatives from L’Oréal, the American Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM), and the ISO working group for skin irritation and skin sensitization.
