Our focus on timeliness and accuracy in every stage of development means you can count on reliable, reproducible results, every step of the way.


Basic Research

With a global network of commercial breeding facilities, rigorous biosecurity and genetic standards, and research support services such as surgery and preconditioning, we can provide you with an animal model to meet your specific research needs.


Discovering, profiling and choosing your drug candidates for preclinical development is a big step, so reliable and reproducible data is critical to proceed from target through to candidate selection.

Safety and Efficacy

Moving your candidates into safety assessment efficiently is critical to staying competitive further down the pipeline. With a full range of in vivo and in vitro safety and efficacy testing capabilities, our scientists, program managers and regulatory experts can help you cost-effectively produce evidence of a compound’s biological activity and safety before moving into the clinical phase. Whether you need a single study or a complete IND-enabling program, we work with you on the design and execution, giving you the confidence that comes from knowing your study will be done right and on time.

Clinical Support

Utilizing our knowledge of your drug’s path from discovery through safety assessment, our scientists can transition your drug seamlessly into the clinic.
