Helping Scientists Control Their Research...Let's Start The Conversation

Laboratory animal models are important tools in oncology research, as they allow scientists to test their in vitro-generated hypotheses in a mammalian, whole-animal system. Since many types of cancer can be affected by environmental factors, having control over these factors is key to generating reproducible, meaningful data.
Research Diets products are routinely used for oncology research. OpenSource diets contain purified ingredients, which provide a clean background (i.e. phytoestrogen and chlorophyll-free) to reduce ‘noise’ during in vivo imaging and control over factors that may impact gene expression. To read more, see our Product Literature.
