Charles River can remove adventitious organisms, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites, from mice and rats with our rederivation services. Rederived animals are guaranteed to meet our SOPF - VAF/Elite® health status and will be maintained in biosecure isolator environment to protect the health of the colony. We have rederived over 10,000 unique strains of mice and rats with 100% removal of unwanted organisms.
