Science Ends Animal Testing

New technology developed by scientists could replace industry animal testing by 2011.

Researchers from Hurel Corporation have created new technology that could soon end animal testing in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, household cleaners, and pesticides. This new, cruelty-free method of testing involves placing human cells and chemicals, which mimic the body's immune system, on a small glass chip. Products can then be applied to the chip to assess the reaction. Scientists say this method of testing is more efficient and could be available by next year. The study was partly funded by cosmetics behemoth L'Oreal—a company that does not test finished products on animals.
