Reduction/Replacement

These systems have the potential to improve efficiency, efficacy, and safety. MPS includes tissue models such as spheroids, organoids, and organs-on-chips serving as a replacement/reduction method.

It is important to ensure that rodent colonies are free of adventitious infectious agents to support high quality, robust research & safety data. Recently, molecular-based diagnostics combined with environmental monitoring strategies have been adapted by many institutions to either supplement or replace more traditional health surveillance methods.
