Animal Importation Service

The Animal Resources Centre offers a comprehensive animal importation service, housing Australian or International sourced rodents (Mice or Rats) in one of their two Quarantine Approved Premises (QAP). Individual customer needs are determined and every import is customised to meet these specific requirements, including, post-quarantine clearance, comprehensive health testing, rederivation, and/or cryopreservation. A case-specific cost estimate is prepared and itemised invoicing allows customers to track expenses. Invoicing for each import is carried out sequentially as each part of the importing process is completed.
