Commitment to Animal Welfare

A core focus of biomedical research and innovation is to preserve humane, compassionate welfare practices for every animal under the care of AmplifyBio. Through active investment in technology and supplemental study methods, we engage in the most ethical and conscious use of in vivo models to promote scientific discovery without harm. Our highly-trained preclinical team integrates compassion and scientific expertise to exceed strict regulatory compliance standards, keeping animals safe, protected, de-stressed, and strategically used only when necessary.

Excellence in Animal Care Leads to Excellence in Science

At AmplifyBio we value the animals in our care as true research partners, treating them with compassion, respect, and gratitude at all times. We stay up to date on some of the technologies that will reduce and at times, replace in vivo methods and are committed to bringing those methods on as they are established. Notably, our recent expansion of in vitro characterization bioanalytics capabilities refines what we know about drug safety and function in real-time, often reducing the number of animal models needed.
