The Shenyang GLP center (Safety Evaluation Center) is one of the R&D departments of SYRICI (Shenyang Research Institute of Chemical Industry). SYRICI established the first-class safety evaluation center with significant support by China and the United Nations Development Programme along with aid from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
Toxicology evaluation tests pesticides, drugs, and other chemicals through testing on mice, dogs, rabbits, chickens, fish, birds, and other animals. The toxicity, teratogenicity, carcinogenicity, and environmental impact of the chemical are determined. Such testing provides a basis for ensuring public health and protecting the environment.
The only one safety evaluation testing center both for medical and pesticide chemical testing which is approved by the government. The center has the ability of carrying out more than 600 testing projects annually.The Center was established at a level nearly equivalent with international standardsand is able to conduct all four phases of pesticide toxicology experiments,environmental toxicology experiments and safety evaluation experiments for new drugs. The Safety Evaluation Center was approved as the Chemical Industry Pesticide Safety Evaluation and Quality Supervision and Testing Center, the National New Drug and Pesticide Safety Evaluation Research Center (Shenyang), and the Liaoning Provincial New Drug and Pesticide Safety.
The center has a nearly 2400 m² fully enclosed barrier system (aseptic animal-rearing facility) , 1700 m² modernized multi-purpose laboratory building meeting international standards, 1700 m² large animal laboratory .All of these laboratories are equipped with advanced experiment instrumentation. These facilities are managed under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) principles, a QAU (quality assurance unit) system is in place, and SOPs (Standard Operating Procedure) have been established and are being implemented for all operations.
