Getting preliminary toxicity and exposure information about thousands of chemicals will be easier by the end of September when the EPA unveils an updated, interactive database, Bloomberg BNA News reported recently.

Users will be able to use information from 8,000 chemicals in the database to analyze the potential toxicities of a new chemical’s structure before the molecule is made, to guide safety tests of a chemical during research and development, and to address questions that arise as customers explore new applications of an existing chemical.

The updated, interactive Chemical Safety for Sustainability Dashboard will provide users access to chemical data generated by the EPA and through a multi-agency collaborative effort called Toxicology in the 21st Century, or Tox21, said Matthew Martin, a research biologist with the agency’s National Center for Computational Toxicology.
