Research Diets will incorporate your compounds into any experimental diet and ship within 5 to 7 days. Feeding test compounds eliminates dosing related stress to the animal, eliminates vehicle effects, and saves time and labor.
Consistent purified ingredient OpenSource diet formulation provides a clean, repeatable control diet for your research. Precise, graded addition of test compounds to your specified control diet allows evaluation of dose-response effects in your animal model. We can blend your compound homogeneously into any diet, down to ppm and even as low as parts-per-billion.
Research Diets will incorporate test compounds into pelleted micro batches as small as 200 grams for those compounds that are in limited supply. Our production facility is well equipped to pellet small batches at precise doses.
STEP 1. Complete a Material Transfer Information Form (MTIF) prior to sending us any test compounds. This is a simple procedure designed to assure that we handle your compounds efficiently, effectively, and safely.
STEP 2. Calculate the diet dose of your compound.
We can make as little as 0.5 kg of diet with added compounds; however, our minimum charge is for 12.5 kg. Generally, we will require a small increment of additional compound to provide for loss in processing. We will routinely return to you the original container containing excess compound if any, or empty, as the case may be.
