What is Turner Scientific?
We are a company with a dual, yet related, focus.
Our preclinical 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 clients 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 noise and vibration concerns. Building on this expertise, Turner Scientific provides personalized services to monitor noise, ultrasonic 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 confounds like noise and vibration in your own animal research, we at Turner Scientific strive to provide the most up-to-date services and solutions for your needs.
