(top)

Antagene Inc. has secured a 40 acres animal facility with a state of art animal facility that is UDSA accredited and has NIH Assurance.  We are well-positioned as a primary supplier in contract animal research services providing services to a host of clients.  The company is dedicated to offer a wide range of quality preclinical contract animal research services designed to support various research programs. These services range from the preparation of animal models for client use to the complete outsourcing of entire studies.

I. Animal models for research; toxicology; animal nutrition and intensive systems for production of animal proteins.

An animal model usually refers to a non-human animal with a disease that is similar to a human condition. These test conditions are often termed as animal models of disease. The use of animal models allows researchers to investigate disease states in ways which would be inaccessible in a human patient.

In order to serve as an useful model, a modelled disease must be similar in etiology (mechanism of cause) and function to the human equivalent. Animal models are used to learn more about a disease, its diagnosis and its treatment.

Examples of our service:
(top)

Genetically selected (such as in diabetic mice) animals
Customized tissue and toxicology studies.

The increase in knowledge about the genomes of non-human primates and other mammals that are genetically close to humans are allowing the production of genetically engineered animal tissues, organs and even animal species which express human diseases, providing a more robust model of human diseases in an animal model.
