Laboratory Animal Services maintains a list of Approved Vendors for each species. Animals acquired from approved vendors can be ordered and received according to established procedures. Animals from non-approved sources may be subject to special quarantine, isolation and/or testing procedures, and may not be allowed in certain facilities.
Approved vendor status is determined by the Laboratory Animal Services veterinary staff based on some or all of the following criteria: quality control and testing results provided by the vendor, vendor reputation, facility tours by Laboratory Animal Services, and test data available from other institutions.
Investigators wishing to have a vendor included as an approved vendor should contact the Director of Laboratory Animal Services.
