Ligue suisse contre la vivisection
The goal of "La ligue suisse contre la vivisection" is to fight against, with all the possible legal means, the practice of vivisection such as the use of animals for medical, scientific, military, industrial or commercial purposes, until the total abolition of such practices. It recognizes and helps, financially, the creation and development of the alternative methods to animal tests.


In order to limit the vivisection, Mr Egon Naef foundation helps researchers and scientists to develop alternative experimental methods to animal testing. Naef Foundation also encourages all the researchers to use these alternative methods, especially the in vitro methods, within the framework of their research. Naef Foundation gives a prize each year to a scientist who has made significant contributions to the development of the alternative methods.


Pro Anima
Pro Anima is an apolitical and independent scientific board dedicated to develop human biomedical research by promoting alternatives to animal experimentation. Pro Anima has been active for more than 25 years using all the possible tools to raise awareness about animal testing and existing alternatives: social networks, stands, poster campaigns petitions, medias, among other initiatives.


3R Research Fundation
The aim of the 3R Foundation is to promote alternative research methods to animal experimentation through grants for research projects. The organization supports first and foremost projects aimed at developing new methods or refining accepted methods (validation) which offer practical improvements vis-à-vis standard animal experimentation in line with the 3R motto Reduce, Refine, Replace.


The In Vitro Testing Industrial Platform (IVTIP), is an informal platform founded in 1993. Currently it comprises 46 companies from different sectors (assay developers, technology providers, chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies), with significant in vitro testing activities.


The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro is the leading organization in Europe that strengthens the scientific network of in vitro toxicologists and promotes in vitro toxicology, both scientifically and educationally in all countries of Europe.


Vitrocell Systems
Vitrocell systems offer customers from industry and research institutes new culture and exposure systems for in vitro studies of gases or complex mixtures. The VITROCELL modules adapted to MucilAir offer new possibilities for the characterization of the effects of airborne substances such as gas, nanoparticles and complex mixtures.
