Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP)

Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP)

The Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP) test is an In-Vitro method to evaluate chemicals inducing serious eye damage or serious eye irritation.  This test method is used to classify substances as 'ocular corrosives and severe irritants' as defined by the EPA, EU, and the GHS.  This In-Vitro test reduces the need for laboratory animals to perform a standard Draize Test.
