PRIMACYT is approved by the European Commission as an EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) and serves as member of the laboratory network responsible for the method validation.
Our colleagues are professionals and undergo continuous training in the preparation, isolation and cryopreservation of hepatocytes in general, including related co-products, methods and tools. We are a GLP certified laboratory since 2006.

Liver cells are used in drug discovery and pre-clinical drug development in human and animal health. Primary hepatocytes represent an intact cellular system, containing the required proteins and enzymes to study xenobiotic uptake, biotransformation and excretion: uptake transporter proteins, drug-metabolizing enzymes performing hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation and conjugation reactions and efflux transporter proteins. Because of this, hepatocytes represent a cost-effective and viable alternative to in vivo assays.
Animal health plays an important role not only for the welfare of pets and domestic farm animals but also for animals used in food production. For the development of veterinary drugs we offer liver cells from a variety of species including dog, horse, sheep, goat, pig, poultry and fish.

A number of these animals also play an important role in environmental risk assessment of herbicides and fungicides used in crop protection. Isolated hepatocytes from ruminants, poultry and fish have increasingly become an important research tool in metabolism and bioaccumulation studies. Cost-saving test methods using hepatocyte cultures as alternatives to animal experiments will reduce the number of animal experiments and are currently introduced into OECD test guidelines.
