Efficacy Studies


We have an extensive portfolio of experimental and field infectious disease models for use in client efficacy studies. In addition to our range of validated disease models new models and protocols can be developed to complement the needs of our clients. Short- and long-term studies (e.g. duration of immunity, foetal protection), involving a range of veterinary medicinal products such as vaccines, antimicrobials, anthelmintics, anti-inflammatories and immunostimulants can be carried out.

All regulatory studies are conducted to GCPv standards and our expertise in in-house GCPv trials can also be extended to the conduct of field studies.

We offer a range of diagnostic assays to support our Animal Health studies as required including virus isolation, antibody ELISA, serum neutralisation tests, real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and parasitology assays.
