Animal Production Program

Process

The National Cancer Institute Animal Production Program is administered by the Biological Testing Branch. Rodents are supplied to Federal Institutions and to grantees/contractors with a current OLAW Assurance on file. Requests from international entities seeking rodent strains solely available from the NCI Animal Production Program must have an OLAW Assurance or current AAALACi accreditation and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

To meet the above needs, animal production contracts plus quality control contracts are used. The animal production contracts are used to propagate the NIH sublines of the strains. Many of the strains produced are not available commercially and the NCI program is the sole source of several lines. Click here for ordering and pricing information
