OECD Guidance Document on Good In Vitro Method Practices

The OECD guidance document on good in vitro method practices (GIVIMP) has just been published. The aim of this guidance document is to reduce the uncertainties in cell and tissue-based in vitro method derived predictions by applying all necessary good scientific, technical and quality practices from in vitro method development to in vitro method implementation for regulatory use. It is equally relevant to ensuring good practices in the development and use of in vitro methods as alternatives to animal-based research.
