Assay and Model Overview

Assay and Model Overview

The MSU In Vivo Facility offers an extensive list of models and capabilities to suit your efficacy, early safety, animal health, and device testing needs. As part of a large university with a highly respected pharmacology department, a high ranking veterinary teaching and research hospital, and other state-of-the-art facilities, we are able to offer a wide range of in vivo models in rodent and non-rodent species, including large animals and farm animals. Examples of our services are listed here and throughout the website. Please contact us for more information or to discuss our additional capabilities.
