GLP Drug Safety Testing Center



The Drug Safety Testing Centre (DSC) is a new HKSTP initiative to facilitate the translation of promising therapeutics and medical devices from the pre-clinical phase to the clinical stage.

Fully supporting industry needs, the state-of-the-art DSC adheres to the highest international and industry standards, including AAALAC and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP), which is an international standard prescribing a set of rigid and quality criteria for conducting studies, data collection and reporting. It defines how preclinical data is required and accepted by different regulatory authorities (for example, China NMPA, US FDA and OECD).

DSC will be the first of its kind in Hong Kong providing GLP-compliant preclinical services on toxicology, genotoxicity, toxicokinetics, safety pharmacology, reproductive toxicology, ADME and more. It is targeted to start operation in early 2022.
