Well suites Physiological and Pathological Models – invivo studies.
This strain has disrupted mitochondrial antioxidant enzyme, Nicotinamide Nucleotide Transhydrogenase (NNT) due to a natural deletion in the exons which completely disrupts protein expression. This mutation is responsible for the impaired glucose clearance and resting glucose levels.
BALB/c is an albino mice inbred strain. BALB/c mice play important roles in oncological research.
Body weight of male and female is almost equivalent and is sensitive to carcinogens. They develop lung tumours, reticular neoplasms, renal tumours and other tumor variants, making it a good candidate for cancer recovery studies and Immunological studies.
An Outbred albino for Multipurpose use.
The Sprague Dawley rat is an outbred multipurpose breed of albino rat used extensively in medical research. Its main advantage is its calmness and ease of handling. These rats typically have increased tail to body length ratio compared with Wistar rats.
The Wistar rat is an outbred albino rat. The Wistar rat is currently one of the most popular rats used for laboratory research. It is characterized by its wide head, long ears and tail length that is always less than its body length.
A white albino extensively used in general multipurpose research.
Similar to dietary requirements of humans, Guinea pigs also require external source of vitamin C. They serve as a good source of serum complement. A well suited model for auditory and immunological research.
Golden brown and white patched hamsters are the best model for research releted to hormonal effects and reproduction. They are also well suited for dental caries, nutritional studies, cardiovascular and pharmacological research in infectious diseases and pathological investigations.
