Rat Health Monitoring Profiles (HMP)

Heath Monitoring Profiles (HMP) are designed to produce comprehensive results whilst minimizing costs. If you require flexibility, we can create custom panels to suit your requirements. The profiles include Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) panels (quarterly and annual), health monitoring panels (basic, full, and comprehensive), and soiled bedding sentinel (SBS) systems. Panels are applicable to live animals or survival sampling.
Health Monitoring Profiles: Soiled Bedding Sentinels (SBS)
HMP: SBS Panels combine different technologies: serology, molecular testing, microbiology, and pathology. The following panels are not mandatory and can be customized to personal specifications.
For increased reliability in microbiological detection and lower costs, Cerberus Sciences recommends live animals be tested for the R-SBS Panel. Live animal submissions include:
  • External examination and description of lesions by veterinary pathologist and/or experienced technician
  • Humane euthanasia and necropsy
  • Inclusive sample collection and 3 months archiving for follow up testing
However, if you wish to use survival sampling you can find the preferred sample type for each test here.
