European Union Alternatives Center Releases CheLIST Database

The European Union Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) has just released the “Chemical Lists Information System” (CheLIST) tool. CheLIST was developed to assist test method developers in choosing appropriate reference chemicals for development of in vitro methods or computational biology models for predictive toxicology or pharmacology. It provides a means to determine whether a chemical or group of chemicals has been tested in a major European Union or international research study, and may also assist in determining whether the chemical appears on a specific regulatory inventory.
