Microfluidic Testing for LLNA Replacement

The Hurel Corp. has developed a microfluidic, non-animal alternative to the LLNA and it has partnered with L’Oréal to make this approach a reality—in the form of a chip.

A Rapid and Sensitive In vitro Method to Ascertain Antioxidative Capacity*

New methodologies have recently been developed to determine antioxidant effects but they often require extensive training and are time-consuming to conduct. In the present article, however, the authors describe an in vitro method to detect the effects of antioxidant-containing formulations using photochemiluminescence to provide rapid, accurate and sensitive measurements.

Researchers Mimic the Lymphatic System in Animal Alternative Chip

A chip created by L'Oréal and Hurel Corp. is designed to replace the local lymph node assay, a test often performed on cosmetic raw materials. In addition to saving animals, the chip is also said to be less expensive than animal testing. Hurel developed the working microfluidic portion of the chip.
