You need pathogen-free chickens for veterinary vaccine production, research, and as sentinels for virus isolation. You want birds at a specific age raised under the same rigorous biosecurity programs that you employ in your own facility. Charles River Avian Vaccine Services has grow houses in the US for the production of SPF chickens ranging from one day to seven weeks old to meet your exact requirements. Older birds may be available upon request.
In addition to SPF chickens, our products also include SPF eggs, organs, tissues, and cell products. If it is specialized services that you need, turn to our avian laboratory that offers in-house testing and vaccine support services. This includes, but is not limited to, USDA-licensed production of bulk antigens for further manufacturing (FFM), field isolate virus isolation, customized research projects, vaccine progeny challenge, and fractional dose studies.
