Health surveillance is to detect subclinical infections of animals with the potential to detrimentally affect research. Maintaining healthy animals is essential to the integrity of scientific research as well as animal welfare.
Though SPF (Specific-Pathogen-Free) animals can be commercially acquired, all research animals must be monitored for naturally occurring diseases especially infectious diseases, as well as genetic integrity and environmental factors (e.g. light, food, water, bedding condition).
To ensure researchers have the necessary tools to meet all their needs, CD BioSciences offers a wide range of services from molecular biological analysis to organism related services. Our health surveillance program monitors laboratory animals for both routine surveillance and diagnosis of diseases.
Our health monitoring services are based on serological, bacteriologic and parasitic evaluations on blood, fecal, and fur samples.
Verifying the health status of research animals.
Routinely monitoring against potential diseases especially infectious diseases in an animal population.
Effectively developing necessary molecular and serological assays to detect pathogens (e.g. viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi).
Identifying and excluding harmful factors affecting the health of animal colonies.
Taking care of health problems in animals and informing the clients.
Breeding the animals if necessary and genotyping the off-springs.
Purposes of Our Health Surveillance
Ensuring the health and well-being of animals.
Preventing the entry of infectious agents.
Minimizing the opportunity of cage-to-cage contaminations.
Advantages of Our Health Surveillance
Full Species Coverage
We provide health surveillance services for all laboratory animal species (e.g. zebrafish, mice, rats, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets and non-human primates).
Species-Specific Monitoring Program
Our monitoring program is specifically developed for each species. Necessary quarantine and isolation are performed upon arrival.
With our highly skilled technicians and excellent facilities, your animal colonies are maintained with high security, no cage-to-cage transmission of infectious agents.
