CRO Harlan Laboratories, which also provides research models, has expanded its specialty research production facilities in Indianapolis and Livermore, Calif. This expansion more than doubles the number of isolators at these sites, allowing Harlan to meet growing customer demand for its immunocompromised models.
"Our investment in these facilities underscores our commitment to providing the highest quality research models and services to investigators across the globe," said Joe Meyer , vice president, global commercial operations. "We will continue to expand and enhance our facilities worldwide to meet the needs of the research community in key therapeutic research areas like oncology, immunology and toxicology."
The facilities have environmentally controlled breeding isolators, supported by individual air supply and HEPA filtered air handling to ensure the integrity of the colony housed within each isolator. They also feature the latest equipment and biosecurity measures including a watering system with automatic flushing to help prevent the unwanted proliferation of organisms, as well as a whole building redundant backup power system. Harlan also incorporated several sustainable components to the newly renovated Indianapolis and Livermore facilities.
