University Researcher needs veterinary medicine laboratory needed for measuring fat soluble vitamin A and E levels in plasma and in milk samples on high sensitivity equipment capable of measuring vitamin levels of For vitamin A (as retinol), levels are 0.02 ? 0.05 ug/ml in (vs. 0.2-0.6 in humans) and for Vit E, about 0.1-1.0 ug/ml in elephants (vs. 5-10 in humans). For Vitamin A, we also want to look at Vit A esters, as well as retinol, if at all possible
Preclinical Contract Research Organization neededed for Influenza vaccination efficacy study in a specific strain of KO mice. Vaccination followed by challenge with live virus. Plasma should be collected before vaccination and at 4 weeks. This should be followed by challenge with the Influenza virus and two weeks of survival curve .Vaccination would be delivered IM and infection delivered intranasally as in humans.
Major Genonmics Medical Research Center needs virology laboratory for anthrax and other testing on mammoth bone sample from Russia prior to doing DNA study on ancient DNA. Recent news, reported an anthrax outbreak in Siberia from carcasses underneath melted permafrost.
The exact precedence of this sample in Russia its unknown,
and we wouldn't like to take any risks regarding possible sample contamination.
We would thank you any help you could provide us with, regarding the testing and safety to use this material,
Thanks very much
Veterinary medicine laboratory needed for performance testing of diagnostic monitoring device that measures heart function, respiration rate, and continuous blood pressure against blood pressure machines (arterial catheters, doppler methods, and tail cuffs) for accuracy of values. It will need to be tested on both standing horses and horses under general anesthesia. Approximately 20-30 horses will need to be used.
Laboratory needed for drug compound testing during stability study of Standard mouse chow. Chow was formulated using the compound to a final concentration of 750 mg of drug per kg of chow. In order to verify and establish formulation stability, we need the drug concentration in the pellets to be measured over the period of 6 months. We need an initial measurement to be taken (starting point) and then at least 2 more measurements; at the 3-month point and the 6-month point.
