  • Stock colony to minimize study lead times
  • Integrated individual-animal file tracking system
  • 2,000 m² / 22,000 ft² AAALAC (The Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International)-accredited vivarium
  • NHP breeding facility with abundant supply
  • Husbandry following U.S. and EU standards
  • OLAW (Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare) assurance approved
  • 60+ technicians
  • 10+ AALAS (American Association for Laboratory Animal Science) certificates
