New PCR and serology assays including Zika, Dengue and West Nile virus are now available for screening nonhuman primate colonies.
High-throughput mass spectrometry enables high-quality data from very large-scale screens to ID hits for difficult targets.
Humanized models help simulate the immune environment needed to investigate new immuno-oncology therapies.
We are pleased to announce our newly designed Gnoto-safe® Shipping (GSS) container, which combines the latest in animal welfare and colony management in an environmentally responsible way. Beginning Sunday, September 4, 2016, all VAF/Elite® and immunodeficient animal models ordered through Charles River will be shipped to you in this new container.
Charles River has established ICH core battery tests and supplementary safety pharmacology models to meet current regulatory requirements. In an effort to further support our partners' needs, Charles River is continually validating state-of-the-art equipment, assays and experimental techniques to improve both current evaluations and animal welfare.
Charles River Pre-ID™ services offer multiple identification options, including ear tag, microchip implant, ear notch and tattooing.

Ferrets (Mustela putorius) and cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) are the primary animals used in vaccine development for infectious respiratory diseases such as influenza, RSV and hMPV. The availability of these and other suitable animal models is an essential component in the development and final lot release of many other human and veterinary infectious disease vaccines.
The Charles River Biologics Testing Division has begun its implementation of a laboratory execution system (LES) throughout its global sites. LES is a computer program designed to replace paper laboratory notebooks, increase accuracy and efficiency, and streamline the review of daily laboratory activities.
