Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP) Test Method for Identifying Ocular Corrosives/Severe Irritants and Substances not Classified as Irritants

The Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP) test method is an in-vitro test method that can be used, under certain circumstances and with specific limitations for eye hazard classification and labeling of substances. The purpose of this Test Guideline is to describe the procedures used to evaluate the potential ocular corrosivity of a test substance as measured by its ability to induce opacity and increased permeability in an isolated bovine cornea. 


In-Vitro Testing Laboratory

Scientists in our In-Vitro testing labs are well trained on ASTM, AATCC, AOAC, CLSI and EN standard methods. The efficacy testing services of this laboratory include MIC/MBC, biofilm prevention and removal, time-kill kinetics, clean room disinfectant validation, zone of inhibition and custom efficacy studies for disinfectants, antimicrobials and other products requiring EPA registrations and FDA 510(k) submissions. Studies in our…
