Pharmacology

We have established experience conducting pharmacokinetic (PK) studies including drug half-life, biodistribution, bioavailability and safety evaluation. We offer bioanalytical methods of development and validation to identify and quantify test articles, metabolites and degradation products in blood, urine and other biological fluids or tissues.

Alternative Testing on Cosmetic or Chemicals

The intention of preclinical animal testing is to evaluate the potential hazard of testing item toward human by using appropriate animal models. However there are more and more substitute testing method been developed to reduce the usage of animal as technology improved with time. Considering animal welfare and reduction in laboratory animal usage, the European Union (EU) has prohibited animal testing in cosmetic products and even more prohibited the marketing of foreign cosmetic products that has been tested on animals. The corresponding safety evaluation should be done by in vitro system. Not only cosmetic products, the skin irritation test of chemical is going to be substituted with in vitro model these days in EU and these concepts are gradually popularized over the world. Level Biotechnology Inc. has established several in vitro alternative testing methods which can replace the traditional animal testing model. Thus the cosmetic and chemical industry could test their products in Taiwan without collaborating with overseas CRO facility.
