Laboratory Animal Testing
Pipeline Biotech A/S is expert in carrying out in life (in vivo) studies using a wide range of experimental animals, including mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, mini pigs and domestic pigs.
These studies are carried out to the highest ethical and quality standards.
It is Pipeline Biotech’s policy and practice to use only use laboratory animals from licensed breeders, bred and raised to the standards demanded by Federation of Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) and to specific pathogen free (SPF) quality.
All breeders used by Pipeline Biotech ensure the welfare of their animals using comprehensive quality assurance programs that encompass health monitoring, genetic monitoring, environmental control and nutritional stability.
Health status control of all imported animals is performed and the housing and caretaking systems of Pipeline Biotech are designed to assure that the SPF-status will be preserved during the study. Only fully trained personnel handle the animals under veterinary supervision. Animal welfare is recorded and actively managed daily, with health monitoring performed according to FELASA guidelines on a quarter annual basis.
Pipeline Biotech monitors all environmental parameters according to the OECD Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) guidelines. These include room temperature, humidity, ventilation and lightning as well as control and calibration of all equipment used. Additionally, the company retains certificates of analyses of diets, bedding materials and drinking water.
