In recent years, there has been a growing movement to promote alternative methods to animal testing and the EU and a few other countries have even moved to ban the import and sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals. The Amino acid Derivative Reactivity Assay (ADRA) Method developed by Fujifilm, is an innovative alternative test method for skin sensitization without the use of animals and it was adopted by the OECD in 2019 as a reliable test method. A revision of the Test Guideline (TG) was carried out in 2022, adding an evaluation for the sensitization potential of mixtures by the gravimetric approach and the ADRA-fluorescence method. 

In this webinar, we will present the technical background of the ADRA method, the use of reagent kits to perform ADRA testing, and our solutions for ADRA analysis that deliver both enhanced selectivity and high-speed testing. Register for this webinar and learn more about how the ADRA method will help you better test the safety of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
