AnimAlt-ZEBET is the value-added database of alternative methods produced by the German National Centre for Documentation and Evaluation of Alternatives to Animal Experiments (ZEBET) at the BfR (Federal Institute for Risk Assessment). It is available free of charge.
EURL ECVAM DataBase service on Alternative Methods to animal experimentation performed by the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM) of the European Joint Research Centre. The DB-ALM provides ready-to-use information presented as evaluated data-sheets in theform of summary records based on extensive bibliographic reviews and detailed information on various aspects of animal alternatives with focuson toxicology assessments of chemicals and formulations.
good cell culture – serum free
Online database for serum-free cell culture media
Online database of BioMed-zet Life Science GmbH providing free information about serum-free cell culture media.
Insilicofirst Online-Database of the collaboration of four leading organisations in toxicity prediction systems
Via one simple interface the environmental toxicity application integrates tools commonly available in silico prediction methodologies to provide the data and predictions relating to the environmental impact of a chemical structure input by the user. The computional prediction system will support the environmetal safety assessment of chemicals.
InterNICHE Alternatives Database
Alternatives database with the objective of avoiding the use of animals in higher education.
Adolf Messer Foundation
The Adolf Messer Foundation promots scientific projects by unique or ongoing support for education of eligible persons. Support of scientific or educational institutions - mainly in germany - for training and further education. Annual awarding of prizes to the german Technical University of Darmstadt and to students of the german Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt a. M.
(formerly FFVFF – Fund for Animal Free Research)
This organization strives for the complete replacement of animal experimentation with animal free methods. It supports and assists research projects which promote the replacement or, at least, the reduction of animal experiments.
FRAME - Fund for the Replacement on Animals in Medical Experiments
Foundation for the Promotion of Alternate and Complementary Methods to Reduce Animal Testing (SET)
Aim is to reduce the number of animals used and/or their distress as effectively and broadly as possible. The Foundation concentrates its support on three main areas of activity: Scientific communication regarding alternative and complementary methods already available and in development, developing and implementing new 3Rs methods, particularly in areas where stressful animal experimentation is still necessary or where scientific routine impedes 3Rs methods, measures with the potential to extend the use of alternative and complementary methods in scientific research, such as implementing 3Rs methods in student training and further education.
Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments
The Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments promotes the development and validation of replacement alternatives to animal experiments. Grants are awarded annually to research, validation and information projects. The Swedish Fund for Research without Animal Experiments is funded entirely through gifts and legacies from the public.
CAAT - EU Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing - Europe
CAAT EU, housed at the University of Konstanz, coordinates transatlantic activities to promote education in humane science and will participate in and/or coordinate publicly and privately funded European projects.
CAAT - Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing
The CAAT is an academic, science-based center affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. The center works together with scientists to find new methods to replace the use of laboratory animals in experiments, reduce the number of animals tested, and refine necessary tests to eliminate pain and distress.

EPAA - European Partnership on Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing
The EPAA is a joint initiative of the European Commission, European trade associations from seven industry sectors and individual companies.
ESTIV European Society of Toxicology In Vitro
ESTIV is a new society that aims to promote in vitro toxicology, both scientifically and educationally, in all countries of Europe.
EUSAAT - European Society for Alternatives to Animal Testing
(formerly MEGAT - Middle European Society for Alternative Methods to Animal Experiments)
The society pursues the following objectives:
validation of alternative methods and promotion of research in the field of the 3Rs (refine, reduce, replace); reduction of the use of animals for tests in the field of education and continuing education; reduction of suffering and stress in laboratory animals by better breeding, keeping, test planning and other accompanying measures.
IIVS - Institute for In vitro Sciences, Inc.
IIVS is a non-profit science-based organization dedicated to the advancement of alternative testing methods. IIVS seeks to refine the science, broaden the use, and increase the acceptance of in vitro testing worldwide.
Since its founding in 1997, IIVS has worked with industry, academic laboratories, and government agencies to implement testing strategies that limit animal use while supplying key toxicological information.
National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs)
The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) is an independent scientific organisation, tasked by Government with supporting the UK science base through the application of the 3Rs. We are also the UK's largest funder of 3Rs research.
ZEBET - Centre for Documentation and Evaluation of Alternatives to Animal Experiments (Germany)
Scientific institution of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment which supports the refinement, reduction and replacement of animal experiments.
zet - centrum for replace methods for animal experiments
zet is a non government research organisation which intend to promote scientific animal welfare. That implies the development and support of methods which are capable to replace animal experiments or reduce the amount of laboratory animals and their suffering. Furthermore, zet wants to inform the population about alternatives to animal experiments and educate about animal welfare through science.
