Alliance Technologies is equipped to perform Corrositex, a dermal corrosion testing assay, that is accepted or approved by a large number of regulatory agencies. Corrositex has also been accepted to identify non-corrosives and skin corrosive subcategories 1A, 1B, and 1C by the GHS; other agencies that accept and approve Corrositex include DOT, EPA, EU/OECD, European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM), OSHA, FDA, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Transport Canada, and IATA as a replacement for Draize testing. Corrositex determines chemical corrosivity and permits assignment of U.N. Packing Group classification/GHS categories for Class 8 corrosives. This test replaces the rabbit test of dermal corrosivity by providing a reliable means of mimicking this test.
