TCP Research & Facility Operations

Exclusion Barrier holding rooms within the TCP are specifically designed, built, and equipped to provide an optimal and high-security disease-free environment for essential breeding colonies of mice that are accessed and maintained exclusively by TCP Facility Operations staff. Modified Barrier rooms hold test animals that have been bred or derived within the Exclusion Barrier and are being actively utilized in research projects. They will also hold mice derived in other locations that have been tested and confirmed pathogen-free. TCP Facility Operations also includes essential support areas such as cage wash and sterilization.

As a strategic academic or private sector partner, you gain access to a comprehensive choice of services that currently includes:

  • Custom breeding of wildtype and mutant lines of mice
  • Technical expertise including drug administration, sample collection, device implantation
  • Support for pre-clinical toxicology/drug trials
  • Research technique training
  • Mouse colony diagnostic and health monitoring services
  • Animal facility design, development and management consulting
