Genetic Integrity and Model Harmonization

Taconic's pledge to provide laboratory mice and rats of the highest possible health status is only part of our overall quality commitment to our customers. Taconic likewise has in place major quality-control programs in genetic integrity and strain harmonization. These two programs ensure, respectively, that our animals are genetically pure and that animals obtained from one Taconic site are as closely related as possible to those obtained from other Taconic sites. Our Genetic Monitoring and Colony Management Harmonization Programs allow us to achieve these two fundamental quality-control goals.
