Selecting the appropriate animal model for your studies is critical to the success of your research. This is why, in 2011, our Model Evaluation Program was created to offer researchers a risk-free opportunity to evaluate the quality of our animal models prior to allocating valuable budget money or study resources.
Now, to further support your research needs, we have expanded our program to include the option to evaluate both surgically altered models and rodent biospecimen products
Charles River offers animal models with combined surgeries or services (e.g., feeding studies with tissue collection) to help meet the dynamic needs of our customers.
