A Guide To Toxicology Risk Assessments

Broughton Nicotine Services has produced an infographic to explain the process for toxicology risk assessments for Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) products. 

Toxicology Infographic

This handy top level guide illustrates Broughton Nicotine Services approach to demonstrating the safety of a product to support regulatory compliance through your chosen pathway.

The infographic covers the distinct areas associated with desk based and laboratory based risk assessment for ingredients, materials, and aerosols.

These include: 

  • Databases, literature, authoritative review searches, and in silico modeling to identify reference guidance values and known or potential hazards
  • Regulatory in vitro Toxicology and Novel in vitro Toxicology assays to assess the effects of aerosols and aerosols-derived matrices in live cells

The outcome of the desk base search and in vitro assays are then contextualised with puffing topography and human consumption data to determine the appropriate safety positioning of a product.  

This useful illustration is ideal for those seeking to learn more about toxicology risk assessments or looking to embark on a study placement,  download your copy today:
