About this item

Cell assays include all methods of measurements on living cells. Confined for a long time to research laboratories, these emerging methods have in recent years found industrial applications that are increasingly varied and from now on regulatory.

Based on the recent explosion of knowledge on cell biology, the measurement of living cells represents a new class of industry-oriented research test, the applications of which continue to multiply (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, environment, etc.). Cellular tests are now being positioned as new tools at the interface between chemical methods, which are often obsolete and not very informative, and methods using animal models, which are expensive, unreliable and widely discussed from an ethical perspective. Finally, the development of cell assays is currently being strengthened by them being put into regulatory application, particularly in Europe through REACH and cosmetic directives. This book is the first summary ever written on this emerging subject, coming fresh from research laboratories.
