Ocular-related studies require ocular-ready models. Whether you are looking to test your novel drug on specific ocular anomalies or on a test cohort with normal vision – pre-shipment eye screening enhances your study success rate while implementing the 3Rs on your program. Screening makes it possible for you to order fewer models with an enhanced confidence of meeting your ocular study specifications. Ocular examinations are performed by experienced veterinarians and technicians to ensure the utmost in model selection.
Eye screening solutions - the following exams are available for nonhuman primates, rabbits and canines:
- Basic eye exam
Select models screened for corneal opacities and certain forms of cataracts. This service utilizes slit lamp biomicroscope assessment of the anterior segment and adnexa with no mydriatic administered.
