Animal Production

DTP’s Biological Testing Branch oversees animal-production facilities that produce inbred, outbred, and hybrid strains of rats and mice. This program provides researchers nationwide with genetically defined, pathogen-free laboratory animals, as well as animal-related services such as jugular vein cannulations, vasectomies, ovariectomies, and castrations.
