Non-clinical safety testing

Regulation (EC) No. 726/2004 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 31 March 2004 laying down Community procedures for the authorization and supervision of medicinal products for human and veterinary use and establishing a European Medicines Agency VUOS has experience with safety toxicological testing for pharmaceuticals. All studies are performed in compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations. All common test systems (in vitro, in vivo, ex vivo) and common administration routes are offered.
