Banixx was independently tested on ocular tissue in-vitro (so, no bunny rabbits involved!) and found to neither cause any irritation nor damage to eye tissue. The testing was overseen by the renowned Dr. Gilger of N.C. State Research Ophthalmology Laboratory.
The summation of his report read as follows:
“Based on these findings, therefore, the test article, Banixx, which resulted in a mean cellular viability of 94.79% on the EpiOcular culture system after a 30-minute exposure, would be classified as a non-ocular irritant. …similar to that of deionized water.” In other words, there was no difference between the samples treated with deionized water and those treated with Banixx.
While Banixx is not sold as an eye solution, it is essential to note that since many pet injuries and lacerations can occur in the vicinity of the eye, using Banixx around the eye will not cause any damage to eye tissue. For more detail, please go to http://banixx.com/for-veterinarians.
