Charles River Laboratories
You spoke up. You told us you only needed what you needed, and that’s it. Well, we listened, and will continue to do so to ensure that we fully understand your preclinical drug development needs. If you want a full toxicology program, with laboratory and pathology support, we can do it. If you need a single stand-alone study, well, we can do that too. You need a partner with exceptional scientific depth and a wide range of services, but you don’t always need all the bells and whistles. We can offer exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less. So, keep talking, because we listened, and we’re not stopping.
