Knowing the exact health status of your research model colonies is vital to achieving valid and reproducible research results. To help ensure that we are providing the exact research models that you need, we conduct routine health surveillance on our animal colonies for an extensive list of infectious agents, some of which may interfere with research results. As part of our comprehensive health monitoring program, we also test the environments in which our models are housed. Our health reports can be accessed online through this website, or can be requested by contacting us at 1.800.338.9680 or [email protected].
