2018 Teklad global 18% protein rodent diets

Product Features

  • Designed to support gestation, lactation, and growth
  • Formulated to reduce soybean meal, thus minimizing the presence of isoflavones, the primary type of phytoestrogen found in lab animal diets
  • Typical isoflavone concentrations (daidzein + genistein aglycone equivalents) range from 150 to 250 mg/kg
  • Exclusion of alfalfa reduces chlorophyll, greatly improving fluorescent optical imaging clarity
  • Absence of animal protein and fish meal minimizes the presence of nitrosamines (a potential carcinogen)
