Preconditioned models and services

Your important research program depends not only on the genetics of the animal model, but also their husbandry and diet specifics. Envigo’s experience with research animals extends beyond providing the animal model, but also considers the type of diet and bedding that are necessary for your research studies.

Envigo’s preconditioned models and services provide rodent models maintained on customer-specific diets within Envigo facilities prior to shipment. In addition to the requested custom diet, customers can specify the animal model, gender, age, time of project initiation, and length of diet maintenance prior to shipment. Additional services, such as surgical modification are also possible. All protocols are reviewed by the Envigo IACUC and are performed under an AAALAC accredited program.  Animals are shipped using Envigo environmentally-controlled vehicles.

There are many benefits to our Preconditioned Models and Services, including:

  • Animals are maintained on your special customized diets within Envigo’s maximum-security production barriers or isolators until shipment
  • Health and genetic integrity of your models are protected
  • Reallocation of labor and other institutional resources support your project
  • Development of in-house diet maintenance protocols is eliminated
  • The same diet can be fed after delivery to the customer

Cohorts of HsdBlu:LE rats, Hsd:SpragueDawley® SD® rats, C57BL/6NHsd mice, and other stocks and strains of Envigo's rodents can be maintained on custom research diets within our maximum-security production barrier and isolator facilities to meet your research needs.
