Biomedical research depends heavily on model organisms and the most of these are rodents, particularly in infectious disease and immunological research. With years of experience serving hundreds of clients all over the world, Creative Biolabs provides a breadth of quality Genetically Engineering Models (GEMs) and Non-Genetically Engineering Models (NON-GEMs) to clients around the world. Our scientists are willing to assist you in selecting the most appropriate one for your research.
It is generally known that animal models are an essential component to all areas of biomedical research. These models can provide results that allow us to deduce knowledge to study a particular disease state in humans. To ensure the full utilization, a model needs to reliably mimic the normal anatomy and physiology of human organs and tissues of interest, as well as accurately reflect the morphological and biochemical aspects of disease pathogenesis.
Rodents, especially rats and mice, have been the leading model organisms used in biomedical research for well over a century. Although other animals, such as non-human primates, zebrafish, fruit flies and roundworms, are also used, rodents have been regarded as a reliable research species mainly due to their small size, short life cycle, reproductive affluence, known genetic background, as well as relative ease of procurement, handling, and housing. With the development of biotechnologies, genetic manipulations further strengthen the predominant utilization of rodents. These manipulations have allowed the researcher to study rat or mice genetically suited specifically to the human disease model of their interests.
As an animal model, rodents have several important advantages over other mammalian models:
