I received a request (see below) for information on in-vitro toxicology testing, about which I know next to nothing.  If anyone is willing to help Ms. LoBuono with some information, please contact her directly.  Thanks….

Mr. Phifer:


My name is Charlotte LoBuono, and I am a research analyst for BCC Research, a company that produces market research reports, newsletters, and conferences. I am compiling a report on in vitro toxicology, and was wondering if someone at the American Chemical Society would be able to speak with me about the use of in vitro toxicology testing methods by the chemicals industry. 

Specifically, out of the global and US in vitro toxicology testing market, what $ value would be attributed to the chemicals industry? Also what about mechanistic and non-mechanistic (statistics-based) approaches? When one looks at the US and global toxicity testing markets, what % and value of those markets do each of these approaches represent?


I can be reached at 201-659-5554 and at lobuono**At_Symbol_Here** I was hoping to speak to someone by the end of the day Monday, or Tuesday morning at the latest. Thank you for your time and help. I really appreciate it.


Best regards, Charlotte
