Project code: 0316009A
Contract period: 01.08.2011
Purpose of research: Applied research
Subproject (1) is designed to improve the tuberculin assay in guinea pigs step-by-step. This method is required in conformity with the pharmacopoeia. Beside the long-term replacement of the in vivo method, the project is also designed to analyse refinement approaches for the short-term use. Moreover, the general benefit of the the use of infrared thermography will be investigated in further laboratory animals used in tumour research and batch quality control testing of medicinal products with the aim of defining suitable clinical end points.
