Keeping it Static: Addressing Microbiome Variation in Laboratory Rodents

Pharmaceutical Outsourcing

In experiments that rely on rodents as research models, the control and monitoring of both genetics and health status are key steps to mitigate variability. Current research demonstrates that the gut microbiome is a significant and overlooked variable that has only recently been considered in rodent models. Specifically, the research community has found that therapeutic response can be directly linked to the health of a model’s gut microbiome.
