Intertek (, the leading provider of quality and safety services to industries worldwide, is pleased to announce an invitation to present their published scientific research at the Society of Toxicology (SOT) Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA, taking place from March 22 to 26, 2015.

Intertek’s scientific and regulatory consultants support a wide variety of industries (including food, feed, cosmetic, consumer, chemical, and pharmaceutical) in evaluating product safety and the potential harm to consumers, patients, or the general public from potential exposure to hazardous substances.

Attendees and exhibitors from around the world will gather at SOT to exchange information on the latest developments in the field of toxicology including leading-edge techniques and products. The poster sessions provide attendees with the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge about the latest research and advances. “Intertek Scientific & Regulatory Consultancy has been an active participant in the SOT Annual Meeting for more than 20 years”, says Ms. Haighton, a senior scientific and regulatory consultant at Intertek. “During this time, we have seen useful advancements in scientific research, and improvements in regulatory policies, arising from this opportunity for individuals from government, academia and industry to come together at the SOT Meeting to interact and share ideas about the diverse areas that toxicology impacts. My colleagues and I are honoured that this year’s SOT Scientific Program Committee, who reviews more than 2,500 abstracts and selects only those that are appropriate for this event’s objectives, has invited Intertek to present three of our most recent scientific papers.”

Intertek will be presenting the following three scientific posters at the upcoming SOT Annual Meeting:
