      Bacterial Infection Models


               Bacterial Infection Models

We have the facilities to culture many different types of pathogenic bacteria for the evaluation of the efficacy of potential antibiotics in rodent models. The bacteria are administered by various routes to model a variety of disease states from food poisoning to lung infection to burn infections. Assay end points include bacterial counts in blood samples and in selected tissues.

Test materials are administered by injection, oral, or intratracheal administration. Plasma or sera are collected at designated time intervals for prompt shipment to your laboratory.

Our necropsy services include removal, weights, preservation and collection of designated organs for histology or shipment to your laboratory.
