Description of our service

In addition to blood and organs, we mean by "other biological materials" any fluid or organic compound having a role in animal physiology and pathophysiology or derived from its metabolism.

These fluids can be used in various fields because their composition is a reflection of the general activity of the animal or organs from which it is derived. The analysis of its composition, physico-chemical characteristics, the items they carry are all usable information for the researcher.

Liquids collected:

  • Urine
  • Milk
  • Feces
  • Amniotic fluid
  • Cerebrospinal fluid

Our method

For waste (urine, faeces), the sampling is performed in metabolic cages.

For milk, the collection consists of milking females.

The amniotic fluid is removed by aspiration.

The cerebrospinal fluid is collected by puncture at the base of the skull.

Possible options

  • Freezing with liquid nitrogen (-80°C).
  • Conservation in different solutions (paraformaldehyde, RNA Later, others ...).
  • Custom sample protocols on request.
  • Shipping with dry ice or cooling pack.

Our added value

  • Traceability of samplings.
  • Adaptation of the model to the needs and objectives of the researcher.
  • Standardised samplings on request.
  • Ethical review process by our IACUC (MESR No. 078).
