Health Reports and Health Monitoring are integral parts of Taconic's Quality Assurance Program. The Taconic International Health Monitoring System™ (IHMS™) includes testing for a comprehensive list of microbiological agents. The Health Reports for each Isolated Barrier Unit™ (IBU™), Modified Barrier Unit (MBU), Biobubble Barrier Unit (BBU) and Research Barrier Unit (RBU) and Gnotobiotic Isolator (MIG) are summarized by Health Report Groups (HRG's).
