Working in-vivo

We can support investigators with their in-vivo work, from designing the experiments to analysing data. We have established partnerships that help us provide a unified, comprehensive and tailored service to our customers. All in-vivo work is in line with the regulations of the Animal Act of 1986.

We offer a range of in-vivo approaches:

  • Analysis of the effect of novel compounds on bone biology and physiology.
  • Discovery of new genes implicated in bone health by studying the bone phenotype of genetically modified animals.
  • Analysis of interventions on animal models of bone disease.
  • Understanding the interactions between changed loading regimes on the bone with novel interventions, of through altered loading in genetically modified animals.
  • Deciphering the complex relationship/communication between the bone tissue and other tissues (such as muscle, joints) or other systems (such as immune system, vascular system).
  • Testing of mice healthspan as described in 'A toolbox for the longitudinal assessment of healthspan in aging mice' (at the moment energy metabolism is not evaluated).
  • Development of disease models implementing Destabilisation of the Medial Meniscus (DMM).
