New Approach Methods (NAMs) for the In Vitro Assessment of Cleaning Products for Respiratory Irritation

March 2, 2023

Upcoming Events


Product safety is a key component of product stewardship. In the cleaning product industry, manufacturers need tests to assess the hazards of their products to promote safe and responsible use. In this workshop, we will review in vitro cellular and tissue-based testing methods for respiratory irritation throughout the life cycle of cleaning products, from raw materials, formulation of intermediate and end use products, and use in their intended markets. The content of the workshop will be used to generate a report to assist the cleaning products industry in best practices and principles when selecting testing methods for their products. You'll hear from experts in the field as we discuss exposure methods, models and application for human health protection among other topics.
