Ocular irritation test on reconstructed corneal epithelium

Regulatory reference: OECD n° 492
Claim: Non-irritant for the eyes
Application field: Chemical substances or mixtures.
Description of the test: Identification of chemical substances or mixtures that do not require classification as (severe) irritants through evaluation of their cytotoxic effects on an in vitro reconstructed corneal epithelium model. NOTE: if the sample qualifies as irritant, further tests are required in order to determine the degree of irritant action.
