Rat and Mouse Colony Management and Breeding Services

Charles River provides full-service rat and mouse colony management programs to deliver animals to you when you need them, in the exact quantities you specify, and with the health status that you require.

When looking at the total cost of transgenic mouse and rat breeding and housing, it is important to look at a fair comparison, since some institutions have extra costs which are not included in per diem pricing. Our mouse colony management  program offers service packages that include rat or mouse husbandry work, technician tasks, veterinary consultancy, and health monitoring.
