Toxicology Laboratory activities were started in early 2007 with small –scale laboratory in which only few test was conducted including MTT cytotoxicity assay, alkaline comet assay and apoptosis assessment.
Melaka Biotechnology Corporation received RM4.12 million from MOSTI in 2008 to establish a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) facility which conducts in vitro mutagenicity studies. The renovation was started immediately and in 2009, the Clean room laboratory renovation was completed.
The laboratory was equipped with high-technology and updated laboratory equipment.
The laboratory specification was in compliance with the GLP requirement.
Currently, nine personnel with a various position working in the Toxicology Laboratory, and all personnel are well-trained and qualified to conduct their job in GLP studies.
