Rat Production

Following a review of rat colony production costs we have been forced to make significant changes to ensure future viability of the colonies. We are no longer breeding the DA or Hooded Wistar rat colony so these will be sourced from ARC, Perth.

Only rat stock up to 6 weeks old will be available and all that is not issued at that age will be culled. However, for orders received ahead of time, we will hold rats up to 8 weeks old at the Production Facility. If rats are required older than 8 weeks, they will be transferred to the Research Facility holding room or requesting campus/institution to be aged there.

Please contact Andrew Bartlett, andrew.bartlett@adelaide.edu.au or 08 8313 4665 if you would like to discuss further.
