Cancer Model Studies


Woodburn Laboratory can further your oncology research using tumor models (orthotopic models, ectopic models, xenografts, syngeneic, or humanized) in mice and rats. Our team can help with anti-cancer drug discovery and drug development or support your purely academic research.


Test Article Administration

Woodburn Laboratory animal technicians administer your biologic, small molecule, or pharmaceutical agent precisely as specified in your IACUC-approved study protocol. Practiced hands administer subcutaneous, intravenous, or other injections and provide expert post-injection monitoring.

Test Article Administration Methods:

  • Intravenous (IV)
  • Intraperitoneal (IP)
  • Subcutaneous (SC)
  • Intratumoral (ITU)
  • Intramuscular (IM)
  • Intradermal (ID)
  • Topical
  • Oral gavage

SPOTLIGHT: Gnotobiotic Models

Germ-free models are safe from contamination at Woodburn Laboratory. Our gnotobiotic colonies are kept in flexible film isolators. These allow for separation of client animals by project, keeping your precious experiment isolated from other animals in the vivarium.
