Türkiye: Draft regulation on plans to extend KKDIK registration deadlines

A draft regulation issued by Türkiye’s Ministry of Urbanization and Climate Change (MoEUCC) has been submitted to NGOs on 14 Nov. 2023 regarding a deadline extension for registrations acc. to KKDIK beyond 2023. Deadlines from the draft for substances manufactured or imported are:

31 Dec 2026:

  • >1.000 t/a
  • >100 t/a within the Aquatic Acute 1 and Aquatic Chronic 1 Category (H400, H410) acc. to CLP
  • 1 t/a within the Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, and Reprotoxic Category 1A and 1B acc. to CLP

31 Dec 2028:

  • >100 t/a

31 Dec 2030:

  • >1 t/a

Nanomaterials and REACh Technical Day

Hugo Giardini, LAUS Business Development Manager, will be representing our services at the “Nanomaterials and REACh Technical Day” on 7 December 2023 in Paris. Come and talk to him if you have any upcoming nano-related project, we have quite some experience in the area of nanomaterial testing for REACH. Or simply pick up some m&m’s 😊

Genotoxicity testing of Nanomaterials calls for individual Approaches

For Genotoxicity testing of Nanomaterials there are specific requirements detailed in the REACH Appendix R7-1 for nanoforms:

  • the dispersion of the nanomaterial should be monitored to ensure that the cells are exposed to a sufficient effective dose under in vitro conditions
  • it is highly advised to verify the cellular uptake by appropriate methods

During the last months we have put a lot of thoughts and research into this topic. We have successfully developed an appropriate approach for our current projects.

As there is a huge diversity in nanomaterials, each test item calls for an individual experimental methodology. So if genotoxicity testing of nanomaterials is something you are concerned with, we would be more than happy to share our experience and discuss a specific strategy for you.

LAUS helps funding the new refrigerated delivery vehicle of Tafel Edenkoben

The volunteers at Tafel Edenkoben (food bank) are doing great work supplying many people in need not only with food but also with furniture, clothes and toys. A new refrigerated delivery vehicle has been acquired in order to transport cooled goods. Funding was made possible by advertisements on the autobody. We at LAUS gladly support their work with an advertisement.

Among our newest equipment is a brand-new BBQ. Find out what else!

To the delight of our staff the latest addition to our technical equipment is a brand-new BBQ (on top of a GC-MS/MS and another LC-MS/MS, of course). Whereas the BBQ is for internal use only (and has been inaugurated already), the GC-MS/MS (Triple Quadrupole) and LC-MS/MS (Triple Quadrupole) are ready to use and waiting for new analytical challenges. If you have any analytical work on difficult substances to do, contact us to discuss our possibilities.

We use Human Blood for Genotoxicity Testing acc. to OECD 487

The Micronucleus Assay is an in vitro study to evaluate the mutagenicity/genotoxicity induced by chemical substances:

OECD 487 In Vitro Mammalian Cell Micronucleus Test

  • detection of micronuclei in the cytoplasm of interphase cells
  • test system: human lymphocytes freshly obtained by venipuncture

We have increased our capacities and can offer good timelines!

We believe that technology and sustainability go hand in hand

Our new LC-MS/MS (Waters Xevo TQ Absolute Triple Quadrupole) guarantees accurate results while reducing environmental impact. The system's reduced energy consumption and use of resources (synthetic air) make it a good choice for labs looking to minimize their carbon footprint. Paired with our highly qualified study directors this makes us a strong partner for your analytical work under GLP. #analyses #LCMSMS

Specific testing for Biocidal Spray Products

For Biocidal Spray Products we offer specific analyses in addition to the standard requirements for biocides:

  • spray pattern
  • internal pressure of spray cans
  • discharge rate
  • clogging

The tests could be integrated into stability studies such as shelf life, accelerated or cold storage.

LAUS testing ABC: M for “Moly” and “Micronucleus”

The Mouse Lymphoma Assay acc. to OECD 490 (short “Moly”) and the Micronucleus Assay acc. to OECD 487 are both in vitro studies to evaluate the mutagenicity/genotoxicity induced by chemical substances.

OECD 490: In Vitro Mammalian Cell Gene Mutation Tests Using the Thymidine Kinase Gene

  • detection of gene mutations
  • test system: mouse lymphocytes (L5178Y TK+/- clone (3.7.2C))

OECD 487: In Vitro Mammalian Cell Micronucleus Test

  • detection of micronuclei in the cytoplasm of interphase cells
  • test system: human lymphocytes freshly obtained by venipuncture

We have increased our capacities and can offer good timelines!
