Environmental Monitoring Services for Animal Facilities

Laboratory animals can be subjected to several environmental stressors in any research facility. Animal welfare, and the quality of research, can be compromised by these variables, so detecting and limiting them is of primary importance.

Turner Scientific offers a variety of services to help you minimize unsafe levels of these environmental stressors: temperature, humidity, light, noise, and vibration stimuli. We have used our 20+ years of experience in measuring, reporting, and reducing environmental confounds to help vivarium managers and scientists around the world.
