Aging

Science and medicine are focused on understanding and solving the diseases of aging. With an aging population globally, we know that demand for your research in this area is expanding. Envigo maintains a commercial inventory of male rat and female mouse models reserved monthly for aged animal availability, or can maintain cohorts of models upon request for your research needs.

Technical Details

Envigo provides ready availability of several rat and mouse models for your aged animal research. If the aged animals you need are not available from our inventory, or if the animals require three or more months of maintenance prior to shipment, Envigo will reserve and hold specific cohorts of animals until the requested age at shipment.

Aged animals are appropriate for use in the following types of research:

  • Memory
  • Neoplasia
  • Longevity
  • Motor skills
  • Age-associated pathology
  • Neurobiology
  • Reproductive senescence
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Immune response

Pricing

Pricing and availability of aged animals from the aging inventory is available on request. For client-reserved aging cohorts, pricing is developed based on the requirements of the project. Prior to initialization of an aging project, Envigo will confirm your expectations, the project work scope, and animal pricing with an agreement of understanding.
