In Vitro Assays Development & Good In Vitro Method Practices

This training will illustrate various aspects of the OECD Good In Vitro Methods Practices (GIVIMP) guidance document (STA 286) using assays/techniques/test systems that have been developed recently by the different trainers. It aims to provide the participants with hands-on, practical skills in how to apply GIVIMP in their daily work in the laboratory, and at the same time learn about modern techniques used for in vitro testing.

The course will be held in english.

Participants will learn among other things:

  • Evaluate robustness of test systems and quality control procedures (AcCELLerate and Evercyte)
  • Choice of test, reference, and control items; solubility verification; development of acceptance criteria (SenzaGen)
  • Method performance and SOP development (RISE)

The training will start with 0.5 day lectures and will be followed by 1.5 days of practical training (Hands on-training) where participants, divided in small groups will get the chance to manipulate and see the critical steps of the methods with the experts. This is a perfect way to quickly approach a method, as well as data analysis and interpretation.
