Despite the impact from COVID-19 outbreak and restrictions on travel and conference gathering, the 9th EPISKIN Academy Workshop has just been successfully carried out through the live-broadcasting platform on Apr. 17th at Shanghai EPISKIN’s head office in Zhangjiang Hi-Tech park. This is also our FIRST online live-streaming show of technical training and product support to meet in vitro alternative testing related needs.
In our initiative to quickly adapt to the current circumstance with the agility to timely respond to our clients’ requests on technical training and support, given the fact that working activities cross sectors are recovering in China but regular on-site training still cannot be organized for the moment, this online workshop highly demonstrated the efficiency and effectiveness of such a new format for technical training and support.
Content of this 9th EPISKIN Academy Online Workshop:
1) Opening and Introduction
2) Review of in vitro Skin Irritation EpiSkin testing method (OECE TG439)
3) Demonstration of key technical steps of Skin Irritation Test using EpiSkin model and data analysis

During the very special period we are all going through around the world, EPISKIN and the EPISKIN Academy are experimenting new way of communication using more and more digital technologies. This totally new way of sharing in vitro testing protocols by live-broadcasting is a great success and we will soon provide other live sessions all over the world.
