Our Capabilities


Woodburn Laboratory, as an ABSL-2 full-service vivarium  and preclinical CRO, takes care of you, your research, and your research animals. Our facilities feature shared procedure rooms including a surgery room, cognitive and behavioral testing equipment, and separate husbandry suites for rats and mice, as well as a fully equipped cell and molecular biology laboratory offsite.

We allow scientists to focus on their science rather than HVAC, husbandry cycles, and staffing. (We take care of those for you!)

Veterinary oversight is available for all activities at Woodburn Laboratory. In addition to our experienced animal care staff, we also provide in-house IACUC services and a state-of-the-art caging system by Innovive.
