Health Surveillance Program Calculator: Sentinel-Based to Exhaust Air Dust (EAD®)

Having an effective health monitoring (HM) program is a critical component of any research animal facility. However, those responsible for developing these programs are faced with the difficult task of balancing budgetary constraints with testing options.

With more facilities considering a transition to an Exhaust Air Dust (EAD®) testing program, we developed the EAD® Cost Calculator to help you determine the cost of switching from a sentinel-based program to one that utilizes EAD® testing methodology. Using dynamic fields, this calculator performs a cost analysis of these two programs based on your facility information. Once you complete and submit the form, you'll get a personalized cost analysis.
