Animal-Free Methods Often Outperform Animal Experimentation

Using animal-free methods can instead improve the integrity and quality of our science.

One of the biggest problems with animal experimentation is that animal-free methods often outperform animal experiments!

Scientists should be using and developing the most reliable methods.

If it’s possible to create better scientific outcomes without animals, then ending animal experimentation is a no-brainer!

Here are some examples:

  • Researchers found that animal tests were able to identify 75% of a set of 64 toxic substances, while a computer model (animal-free method!) could identify 89%.1
  • Biological lab tests based on human skin predicted 70-76% of human results, compared to a mere 56% using the traditional rabbit experiment.2
  • Liver-on-a-chip technology was able to identify 87% of liver-damaging drugs that had before passed animal testing, and the chip labeled all of the safe drugs correctly.3
  • Toxin testing in shellfish via mass-spectrometry has had better accuracy than the mouse assay for a long time.4
