Turner Scientific News

What is Turner Scientific?

 

We are a company with a dual, yet related, focus.  

 

Our preclinical research services division is dedicated to advancing treatments of hearing loss and other ear disorders, and reducing the potential for damage posed by pharmaceuticals and chemicals to the ears. We are respected by sponsors on four continents for a rigorous scientific approach to studying efficacy of otic treatments, and screening for ototoxicity of any pharmaceutical compound.

 

With a focus on better science and improved animal welfare, we use our experience in auditory neuroscience to help animal facilities monitor and mitigate environmental concerns.  Building on this expertise, Turner Scientific provides personalized services to monitor temperature, humidity, light, noise, and vibration in the lab animal space, which pose a risk to the validity of research studies, as well as an animal welfare concern.  

 

Whether providing you with a place to go for your contract hearing research study or assisting you in understanding environmental confounds in your own animal research, Turner Scientific strives to provide the most up-to-date services and solutions for your needs.
