Nonhuman Primate Studies

For more than 30 years, we’ve helped our partners conduct toxicology and safety assessment studies in nonhuman primates. We’re experienced in test article administration via common routes and often called to develop techniques that are more compound specific. 
We are also one of the few establishments in the world with expertise using the common marmoset, an important model in determining the safety of large molecules. We are equally well-established with cynomologous and rhesus macaques.
