Genetic toxicology

A comprehensive range of genetic toxicity services for preclinical assessment and the early screening of candidate compounds. The Genetic Toxicology team works in a purpose-built suite of laboratories and offers a comprehensive selection of genetic toxicity studies.


This includes the complete standard range of tests for preclinical safety assessment.  We also have links with other facilities for the placement of alternative investigative studies, where this is required to elucidate effects seen in earlier studies. and a range of studies suitable for the early screening of
