Models Providing High Biological Relevance and Predictability in Toxicological Assays

Developing cell-based assays can be problematic; the cells must be physiologically relevant for the assay to be predictive, yet sufficiently abundant to be included in the assay without introducing interexperimental variability. In this presentation, ATCC experts discussed the characteristics and utility of various respiratory, skin, and kidney models in toxicological assays.
