Charles River Expands Animal Quarantine Program

Our new rapid quarantine program reduces the quarantine period normally required for health assessment from 4–8 weeks to just 2 weeks. This allows you to receive your study animals faster and start your research sooner. Rapid quarantine is our fastest and most economical quarantine option.

Here’s how rapid quarantine differs from other animal quarantine services:

  • It combines an abbreviated quarantine period with the ability to handle a large volume of cages.
  • Samples are taken directly from principle animals upon unpacking, avoiding the need for live-animal sentinel submissions.
  • After arrival, animal cages are not opened until leaving the facility, enhancing biosecurity while minimizing animal disturbances and stress.
