Embryo Fetal Toxicology

Embryo Fetal Development and Reproductive Toxicology

Scantox has performed embryofetal development studies in minipigs since 1995 and have thus generated a large background data base on adverse findings in minipig fetuses. A large background data collection is essential for evaluating whether findings in embryo-fetal studies are test item related or simply normal background findings, thus ensuring a clear and precise assessment.

The close collaboration with and nearby location of Ellegard Göttingen Minipigs enable a fast delivery of suitable dams, which are estrus synchronised and mated at Scantox for an optimal timeline and safe conduct of the embryo-fetal study.
