*DEADLINE EXTENDED* Grant Opportunity – Win a Free CelTox Sampler!

Hillsborough, NC – April 16, 2020

Due to COVID-19, we have extended the deadline to submit proposals. Deadline Extended to September 1, 2020

MedTec Biolab Inc., is excited to announce that we are giving away a free CelTox Sampler! The CelTox Sampler can expose in vitro lung cell models to a variety of substances (e.g. chemicals, cigarette smoke, or nanomaterials) at the air-liquid interface, mimicking human exposure. We are teaming up with the PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. to identify a research group with the capabilities and expertise to advance the field of in vitro inhalation toxicity testing. Proposals for an award to receive a free in vitro exposure system are being accepted.

“We are very excited to award one of our systems. Our versatile design and ease of use sets our technology apart. Being able to contribute to the advancement of in vitro exposure testing is very rewarding.” says Dr. Zavala (Owner/President).

The winner will be selected based on the proposal’s scientific merit and its potential to reduce and replace the use of animals in inhalation toxicity testing.
