About InVitro International
InVitro International (the Company or InVitro) was incorporated in California in 1985. The Company is engaged in the manufacture and sale of proprietary and preventive products and services directed to human and environmental safety. The Company distributes child safety and identification products and manufactures and markets proprietary in vitro assay kits and systems to detect, rank and predict the potential level of irritancy, toxicity or corrosivity of substances on human eye and/or skin tissue. Since late June 1996, the Company has marketed the Guardian DNA* child safety system through hospitals and other institutional markets.
In vitro tests sold by the Company principally include its IRRITECTION Assay System to evaluate potential for dermal and ocular irritation and CORROSITEX assays to determine Packing Group corrosivity level classifications within regulatory guidelines applicable to the transport and storage of chemicals, formulations and hazardous waste. These assays are principally used by manufacturers and others to verify product safety of consumer, household and industrial products, enable compliance with transportation and environmental regulations and assist in evaluation of workplace safety.
Products and Services
Guardian DNA Child Identification and Safety
The Company entered into a Distributorship Agreement on March 11, 1996 to market the Guardian-DNA identification system developed and supplied by Miragen Inc (Miragen), of Irvine, California.
Child Safety and Identification
The Guardian DNA product and service is a system that provides a reliable means of permitting the positive identification of a child at birth and for many years after the child's DNA sample was originally collected. Guardian DNA therefore addresses the requirements of parents who desire a means of positive long-term identification. Guardian DNA also provides educational tools for parents to protect their children in today's society.
Guardian DNA Sales and Marketing
The market targeted by the Company included institutions and professionals servicing pregnant women.
IRRITECTION Ocular and Dermal Assay System
InVitro originally introduced its EYTEX test kits in 1989 to assess ocular (eye) irritation and its SKINTEX test kits in 1990 to evaluate dermal (skin) irritation. The products were enhanced significantly and introduced to the market in July 1995 as the IRRITECTION Assay System.
The Company's IRRITECTION Assay System is a rapid, accurate, objective, reproducible and relatively inexpensive procedure for determining ocular and dermal irritancy potential. The Company produces various IRRITECTION test kits, which are directed to different applications and characteristics of products to be tested. Different tests are provided to clear, water-soluble products; insoluble, colored or opaque products; products with low surface tension; and alkaline products.
The IRRITECTION Assay System, as enhanced, is an application-driven irritation testing system. Designed to upgrade and enhance EYTEX and SKINTEX test kits, IRRITECTION assays are available in four basic variations, with a single unifying testing system directed to several specific markets. Targeted markets include industrial chemicals; industrial cleaners; petrochemicals; cosmetics; surfactants; and workplace health and safety, particularly for textile and dye manufacturing.
In addition to its assay test kits, InVitro offers a laboratory system, which includes an automated microplate reader and other supplies and components necessary for a customer to perform the IRRITECTION Assay System tests. The computer-driven microplate reader introduced in 1995 reduces total assay processing time and provides a user-friendly testing protocol. InVitro also sells a proprietary computer software program that is used in conjunction with the IRRITECTION Assay System for data analysis and quality control.
The Company currently offers IRRITECTION test kits for 16 different applications, each kit containing components to test from five to 10 samples.
CORROSITEX Packing Group Classification:
The Company introduced CORROSITEX during 1993 for Packing Group classification of corrosive chemicals, formulations and hazardous waste in response to United Nations guidelines and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations originally implemented in October 1993.
CORROSITEX is a cost-effective, rapid in vitro alternative to measure the corrosivity level of chemicals, formulations and hazardous waste for Packing Group classification. The CORROSITEX system includes a modification of the Company's patented dermal biobarrier (membranes with materials that mimic human skin) and a chemical detection system in a chamber beneath the biobarrier. The test sample is applied to the dermal biobarrier.
The DOT exemption permits the use of CORROSITEX for testing a wide variety of chemicals and compounds, including organic and inorganic acids and acid derivatives, acyl halides, alkylamines and polyalklamines, organic and inorganic bases, chlorosilanes, and metal halides and oxyhalides.
Customized Technology Services
InVitro's Customized Technology Services (CTS) Division works directly with prospects and customers to develop application-specific product enhancements.
InVitro actively works with a variety of U.S and foreign government departments and agencies, having responsibility for monitoring hazardous materials, to solicit their support in promoting the use of in vitro irritancy and corrosivity testing. In addition to the DOT, in the U.S. these include the Department of Defense, which provides directives for remediation of military installations, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
