Smart Select Program

Trial a Taconic Animal Model for Quality and Compatibility Assurance

As longtime facilitators of animal-based research, we understand the importance of aligning your project goals and procurement priorities to support advancements in your research. 

Choosing the wrong model—or the wrong partner—could spell major delays and project cost overages. 

To help alleviate uncertainty in selecting a new model, we offer a complimentary animal trial program that allows you to test the quality, consistency, and availability of Taconic’s rodent models. Pilot our most popular mouse or rat models in your facility at no cost to your organization with the Smart Select program. 

 

Take advantage of Taconic’s Smart Select Trial Program to: 

  • Evaluate a specific model strain, before making any financial investment
  • Request up to 20 animals from one of the strains listed below, to test for quality, consistency, and suitability for your experimental purpose
  • Enjoy free ground shipping, where applicable (see table for more details)* 
  • Evaluate Taconic Biosciences - including our consultative support and customer service
  • Get a complimentary scientific consultation, highly recommended for select models

 

Taconic’s Field Applications Scientists are available for complimentary consultations to assist with experimental design, model selection, and provide guidance on model handling, care, and husbandry. Consultations are highly recommended for select models listed in the tables below.
