If you need a highly immunodeficient mouse model...
Our NSG® and NRG mouse models are the most highly immunodeficient mice and the models of choice for cancer xenograft modelling, stem cell biology, humanised mice, and infectious disease research.
In the fast-paced field of oncology research, it can be tough to stay up to date on the latest advancements. NSG®, NSG-SGM3, and NRG mice are a proven hosts for engraftment of human tumours or establishment of human immunity following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Expedite your model selection by viewing our vast repository of xenograft data on the Athymic Nude, Fox Chase SCID and Fox Chase SCID Beige Mouse. Access our database of molecular and patient data for testing the efficacy of anti-cancer agents with our tumour model compendium (PDX, syngeneic, and cell lines).
Cardiovascular disease continues to be an ever-growing global health issue and remains the leading cause of death worldwide. While it is a preventable disease, developing new methods and technologies to investigate and fight this disease remains a top priority. ALZET® Osmotic Pumps offer specific advantages over repeated animal dosing by injection or oral gavage. In Cardiovascular Research, whether studying hypertension, restenosis, nitric oxide (NO) and NO synthase inhibitors, or the renin-angiotensin system, the use of ALZET osmotic pumps to deliver agents continuously provides a powerful tool for experimentation.
