Animal Housing & Equipment

Proper animal housing is critical for safeguarding your animals' health and genetic status, ensuring the welfare of your research models and protecting the integrity of your research data. For more than 40 years, Charles River has been designing animal housing equipment with these necessities in mind. Today, our engineering department develops a complete range of animal housing equipment and devises customer-specific solutions when needed. Each product addresses personal safety, animal welfare and respect for the environment as primary objectives.

Typical uses for isolators include animal quarantine, housing and production of immunodeficient animals, and maintenance of foundation colonies of genetically engineered animals. Isolators also provide a cost-effective method of biocontainment or bioexclusion for critical research studies.
