Health Surveillance - CD BioSciences


Health Surveillance

Health Surveillance

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.

  • Health Verification

    Verifying the health status of research animals.

  • Disease Monitoring

    Routinely monitoring against potential diseases especially infectious diseases in an animal population.

  • Pathogen Detection

    Effectively developing necessary molecular and serological assays to detect pathogens (e.g. viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi).

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Identifying and excluding harmful factors affecting the health of animal colonies.

  • Medical Care

    Taking care of health problems in animals and informing the clients.

  • Breeding and Genotyping
