A New Tool Could Help Us Finally Eliminate Animal Testing

Researchers from the University of Leeds and Avacta Life Sciences have developed a new tool for studying biological molecules and processes, one of which could replace animal-derived antibodies.

The research team demonstrated that the Affirmer technology was successful, producing results similar in quality when used in place of antibodies in a wide range of routine procedures. In addition, due to its smaller size, the Affirmer technology yielded superior results for the new super-resolution microscopy technique.

The team’s research has proven that the technology exists to cut animals out of this process altogether — and probably with more accurate results, too.
