Genetic Toxicology

A pioneer in genetic toxicology, SRI has developed and validated many currently used assays, and helped to establish the genotoxicity test guidelines used by industry today. SRI also contributed a large amount of data to the genetic toxicology databases of the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Toxicology Program.

In addition to routine genetic toxicology testing services, SRI offers extensive experience in solving unique genetic toxicology problems related to pharmaceuticals, biotechnology products, chemicals such as dyes and inks, agrochemicals, and medical devices.
