Protecting the Environment

At ibidi, we take our responsibility towards the environment seriously and take measures that go beyond the required minimal standards given by law. As a company that designs, produces, and sells consumables and devices, we are aware that we leave an impact on the environment.

  • in vitro assays replace animal testing in many areas of basic and medical research, and therefore contribute to the implementation of EU Directive 2010/63/EU: Protection of animals in research
