Human and Environmental Health Screen Results
SciveraLENS makes use of an easy to understand “traffic light” system for communicating assessment results for human and environmental health attributes of specific endpoints and for a chemical overall.
A solid green, yellow, red, or black light indicates sufficient authoritative or experimental evidence for an unequivocal hazard assessment.
When half of the light is gray, this indicates limited evidence is currently available for the endpoint and Scivera’s Toxicology Team has made use of systems such as modeling software, quantitative structural activity relationship (“QSAR”) methods, or expert judgment to complete the assessment.
Green is good. Green lights signal an overall assessment for a chemical or a specific human or environmental health endpoint shows evidence of low hazard.
Yellow is acceptable. Yellow lights signal an overall assessment for a chemical or a specific human or environmental health endpoint shows evidence of moderate hazard.
Red indicates concern. Red lights signal an overall assessment for a chemical or a specific human or environmental health endpoint shows evidence of high hazard.
Black indicates high concern. Black lights signal an overall assessment for a chemical or a specific human or environmental health endpoint shows evidence of high hazard.
Light blue indicates potential, but with caution. Many chemicals have not been tested for a many different hazards. Light blue signals the endpoint does not show concern for the designated endpoint based on list evidence only.
The light blue and gray light indicates an endpoint or chemical overall that does not show list evidence of concern, but after additional work by our toxicology team, we are not currently able to conclude an assessment. Data are currently not sufficient for an assessment.
Scivera’s Toxicology Team has this chemical and endpoint in its assessment queue for deeper review via the expert methods mentioned above (e.g., computer modeling, QSAR, expert judgment, etc.). Scivera prioritizes this additional review based on subscriber interest in chemicals across the SciveraLENS system. If you would like Scivera to expedite an assessment for your work and provide a firm date for completion, contact our Customer Success Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a quote and a completion date for that task.
The “MH” or Maximum Hazard result is based on the highest hazard assessment across all chemicals in the Collection and across all Human Endpoints and a combination of Environmental Health Endpoints for each chemical.
The “HC” or Hazard Category Score is based on an algorithm very similar to EPA Safer Choice, etc. that uses Core Endpoints (CMRD/PBT) and Supplemental Endpoints (all the rest) and suggests a Replace (Red Light), Concern (Yellow Light), Acceptable (Yellow/Green), Preferred (Green), or Incomplete (Gray).
