Nanotech discovery could bring about the end of animal testing

Abstract:
Toxichip, a new nano-biotechnology solution developed at the Tyndall Institute in Cork, has the potential to replace animal testing used in toxicity screening.

The discovery, unveiled by the Minister for Education and Science Batt O'Keefe today to market the beginning of Nanoweek is a sensing system that monitors the effects toxicants have on human and animal cells.
