White paper: Smithers Fully Validates Extended One-Generation Reproductive Toxicity Study Capabilities

Smithers Avanza Invests in Logistical Validation of the EOGRTS (OECD TG 443): Find Out Why

The Extended One-Generation Reproductive Toxicity Study (EOGRTS; OECD TG 443) is a recent approach developed to assess the reproductive toxicity of a broad range of chemical substances.The EOGRTS design offers a number of advantages in comparison to the previously required two-generation reproductive toxicity study. The complex and modular design makes this guideline study unlike any other.

In 2016, Smithers Avanza invested in capital equipment and training enabling a pilot EOGRTS to evaluate our logistical strategy and ensure our expert resources were capable and confident. As a mid-sized CRO, Smithers Avanza believes that structured-on-the-job training for new study designs differentiates us and demonstrates our validated capabilities to our clients.
