Hamster Diagnostic Testing Services
Charles River offers health monitoring (HM) protocols on hamsters for both routine surveillance and for diagnosis of diseases (pathology services). Our protocols include pathology, serology, microbiology, parasitology, and PCR infectious agent testing. Whole animals can be submitted for a HM protocol – samples will be collected in our necropsy laboratory and will be screened for the presence of infectious agents.
Our health monitoring services are fully customizable to meet your specific program requirements.
