Fish Vet Group Expands Our Zebrafish Diagnostics in North America

Jun 22 2017

Brian RocheCharles River and Fish Vet Group have formed a collaboration to provide the most comprehensive portfolio of zebrafish health surveillance and diagnostic testing services to the research community. Fish Vet Group is the world’s largest provider of dedicated evidence-based veterinary services, diagnostic technologies, and environmental monitoring to the aquaculture sectors. From their state-of-the-art aquatic diagnostics facility in Portland, Maine, Fish Vet Group is well positioned to provide rapid disease diagnostics, professional veterinary services, and welfare and husbandry expertise to the growing zebrafish research industry.

Effective June 2017, all zebrafish diagnostic testing previously performed at Charles River will now be performed by Fish Vet Group at their facility. Fish Vet Group will receive samples shipped directly from client facilities, accompanied by a sample submission form generated from Charles River’s Laboratory Testing Management (LTM™) system; following analysis, results will be emailed to clients via LTM™. All pricing, quoting, and invoicing will be managed by Charles River.

By combining Charles River’s scientific and technical experience in research animal health surveillance with Fish Vet Group’s experience in aquatics, this collaboration will help to propel the industry’s zebrafish health surveillance practices and awareness.
