Ensuring quality and consistency in the manufacture of our diets is of the utmost importance. Our Teklad custom research diets are manufactured at a facility dedicated exclusively to the manufacture of diets for laboratory animals. Established quality procedures, which are certified to ISO9001 standards, demonstrate our commitment to excellence in providing consistent products and services to the global research community.
Among the thousands of formulas in our files, each formula is assigned a unique product code that is archived and can be referred to even years later. Upon receipt of an order, a production record with a unique lot number is generated. This production record accompanies the order through all stages of production and packaging, providing traceability. If contacting us with a question or quality concern, it is helpful to identify your diet with the product code and lot number.
If you want to identify your product, look for the following:
- Teklad custom diet product codes begin with “TD” or “CA” followed by a unique five or six digit identification number.
- Each specific batch of a given product is also assigned a unique seven digit lot (Rx) number.
